59004 South Brent 1 May 1994

59004 Yeoman Challenger passes the disused signal box at South Brent on 1 May 1994 with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z40 16:45 Plymouth to Manchester Piccadilly 'Plym Exe-Cursioner' railtour. This was conveniently near the M5 motorway, which allowed a quick sprint to Cullompton (in those days I was driving a BMW 325i), for another picture. There wasn't much time to spare, as the train only spent five minutes picking up passengers who had visited the Rail Fair at Exeter.
