59003 & 59101 Winwick 28 August 1995

A very unusual sight in the north west of England! 59003 Yeoman Highlander & 59101 Village of Whatley pass Winwick on 28 August 1995 with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z30 15:49 Wigan North Western to Bristol Temple Meads 'Crewe Excursioner' railtour. The train was run in connection with the Crewe Open Day, with 47299 being used on the outward leg, and 90139 between Crewe and Wigan. Judging by the amount of cloud, it was a relief to all the photographers present that the train actually passed in a sunny spell!
