7059 Woodthorpe 12 September 2009

Class 421 4-BIG 7059 (actually 4-CIG 1393 with the reinstatement of a buffet car) is propelled past Woodthorpe on the Great Central Railway by Class 33 D6535. It is working the 2C06 10:00 Loughborough to Quorn & Woodhouse service during the line's Diesel Gala on 12 September 2009. The unit carries a number one higher than the last actual 4-BIG unit. I suppose being as it is being pushed this should really be in the Driving Trailers section, but for the sake of accuracy and despite being many miles away from the third rail, I'm still treating it as an EMU!
