33029 1O16 WOK 26/09/87
Returning from the Basingstoke 'Rail Week' on September 26th 1987, we took 'Crompton' 33029 to Woking. The Eastleigh-based Type 3 was presumably deputising for a failed class 50, and is seen here waiting the 'right away' to head to Waterloo on the 1O16 1136 from Exeter St. Davids, sporting the classic '62' West of England headcode. Note the mini-snowploughs. I don't know why I bothered to take this contra-jour shot, but I'm really glad I did. The loco was withdrawn in February 1997 and would later pass to DRS and West Coast Railways.
