59103 Hemington 4 January 1997

59103 Village of Mells passes Hemington on 4 January 1997 with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z59 05:27 Bristol Temple Meads to Sudforth Lane 'G.M. Gyrator' railtour. Freezing cold and with no chance of any sunshine, it was still worth the effort to travel this far for the sight of an ARC 59/1 well off the beaten track. It is traversing the Stenson Junction to Sheet Stores Junction freight line, prior to heading north to Yorkshire for travel over even more obscure freight lines.
