D4095 & 37324 Hailes 6 April 2008

The highlight of the Gloucestershire Warwickshire's Diesel Gala over the weekend of 4-6 April 2008, was guest appearance of shunter D4095 (08881) prior to its export to Libya later in the year. Here it is pictured passing Hailes with 37324 Clydebridge in use as a brake translator with the 10:50 Toddington to Winchcombe service on Sunday 6 April. Slightly worrying lighting conditions here, as the cloud was building up and the background was already in shadow. Would the 08's 15mph top speed be enough to beat the approaching cloud? Luckily it was!
