59001 Woodborough 27 October 2003

59001 Yeoman Endeavour pulls slowly out of Woodborough loop with the 7A09 07:05 Merehead to Acton Yard 'jumbo' stone train on 27 October 2003. The three portions of this 3000 tonne train can clearly be seen, with different wagon types indicating the destination, Crawley (front), Purfleet (middle), & Brentford (rear). Although most of the day was sunny, this morning started misty, and although the sun had been out while the 59 was sat in the loop, there was only a trace of brightness when the train departed.
