D7659 Hailes 9 November 1996

D7659 visited the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway in 1996, as was the star attraction at the autumn diesel gala. It is pictured here passing Hailes with the 10:00 Toddington to Far Stanley service on 9 November 1996. This is one of the few times when its use on the line corresponded with some good weather - at least when I was there!
