D200 Trowell 31 May 1987

D200 passes Trowel on 31 May 1987 with the Hertfordshire Railtours 1L02 17:07 Hammersmith (Midland Railway Centre) to St Pancras 'Coalville Scrutator' railtour. This was the return working of a special taking people to the Coalville Open Day. 33027 & 33056 would take over the train from D200 at Leicester. Note the causal attitude to lineside trespass that was still quite common in the 1980s. Although clearly in a perfectly safe position, well away from the running lines, these photographers would certainly be in trouble today. Even the dog is in on the action!
