73138 Weymouth Quay 2 May 1999

An amazing spectacle, never to be repeated. With holidaymakers, bystanders and rail enthusiasts milling around, and preceded by a police escort, 73138 very gingerly negotiates the Weymouth Quay line on 2 May 1999 with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z93 09:43 Yeovil Junction to Weymouth Quay 'Wey-Farer' railtour. Two identical trains worked over the line during the day, the last ever workings over this iconic line. Although most viewpoints were compromised by people and parked cars getting in the way, this was the only occasion that I have been able to chase a railtour and get numerous pictures just by walking in front of it!
