73129 Hailes 24 September 2005

73129 ambles along the long straight between Hailes and Winchcombe with the 12:02 Toddington to Winchcombe freight on 24 September 2005, during the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway's Autumn Diesel Gala. Although principally designed as a third rail electric locomotive with supplementary diesel engine, Class 73s come in to their own on preserved railways, where their 600hp engine and limited top speed are no handicap at all.
