E5001 Hook 17 July 1993

The National Railway Museum's E5001 finds a brief patch of sun at Hook on 17 July 1993 as it works the Pathfinder Tours 1Z39 05:42 Derby to Waterloo 'DC Green Flasher' railtour. Obviously being a purely electric loco, E5001 only worked the section of the tour running over Southern Region lines, in this case between Eastleigh and Waterloo. It would later work back to Southampton via Horsham. At this time there was still a ban on preserved diesel locomotives working over the national network, however by some strange logic this didn't apply to electrics.
