D200  West Hatch 31 August 1987

D200 is in unfamiliar territory as it negotiates the single track West of England line at West Hatch (between Salisbury and Gillingham) on 31 August 1987 with the Traintours 1Z37 (although of course it should really be 1Z40) Preston to Exeter St Davids 'Desert Songster' railtour. As the tour was running nearly an hour late the lighting was getting a little more head on than I would have liked, but of course as always in these cases you daren't move to a different location for fear of missing it!
