47829 Redbridge 23 December 2001

There is still some frost on the tracks as 47829 rounds the curve at Redbridge on 23 December 2001 with the 1M84 10:05 Poole to Manchester Piccadilly Virgin Cross Country service. The A35 Totton to Southampton road can be seen in the background, while just out of sight to the left is the tidal River Test. Note the remains of the level crossing in the foreground, that formerly gave access to the extensive railway yards that were at one time situated on the land between the station and the river.
