56001 Baulking 10 December 1986

With a cloudy sky to the west, 56001 heads out into the sunshine at Baulking on 10 December 1986 with the 6M24 08:05 Stoke Gifford to Wolverton ARC stone train. On this occasion the train only contains two of the usual ARC PGA hoppers, the rest of the train being made up of Redland, Tilbury Roadstone and Tarmac wagons. A bit of a difficult decision here, as it was either a case of including lots of out of focus grass or acres of sky. The latter seemed the better option, hence the unusual composition.
