D832 Irwell Vale 18 June 1995

D832 Onslaught leaves Irwell Vale on the East Lancashire Railway with a Bury Bolton Street to Rawtenstall service during the line's Diesel Gala on 18 June 1995. The loco is painted in black livery with the early BR 'cycling lion' emblem below the cab window. While this livery was never carried by the class it certainly looks impressive, especially with the white bodyside stripe and wheel rims. Unfortunately, as can be seen from the dark clouds gathering in the background, the sunny start to the day didn't last, although as usual it was sunny on the drive home!
