60036 Brancliffe East Junction 16 December 2000

60036 GEFCO takes the Doncaster line at Brancliffe East Junction with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z42 07:50 Banbury to York 'Siberian Hamster' railtour on 16 December 2000. A bitterly cold day, and no doubt the tour participants were glad of the heat provided by the generator van seen here behind the loco. Brancliffe East Junction Signal Box had closed in 1998, but at this time was still relatively intact. However, it wasn't long before it got vandalised, despite its remote location, and was subsequently demolished.
