47705 Highworth Junction 3 December 1994

47705 passes Highworth Junction on 3 December 1994 with the Hertfordshire Railtours 1Z60 07:50 Paddington to Bristol Temple Meads 'Westerleigh Wizard' railtour. The train would only travel a short distance further, as only a short section of the former Highworth branch now remains. 37072 & 37264 would then bring the tour back out on the mainline. As can be seen from the dark clouds in the background over Swindon, it was not a very pleasant day, and prior to the train turning up we had got well and truly soaked!
