159004 'Basingstoke & Deane' approaches Pinhoe with the 1025 Exeter (St David's) - London (Waterloo).
This was then followed by:-
43014 'The Railway Observer' & 43013 with the Network Rail NMT HST 1040 Exeter (New Yard) - Salisbury.
Compare these scenes with the one I took from the same location of the Barclay Class 20's top and tailing the weed killer train back in 1989 posted in your Exmouth Junction - Honiton section.
Both o f these photographs were taken off my video footage.
Dave Many thanks David
I can’t remember the exact date, but it was around the 30th March 2009. It was after this that the crane sent to re-rail the vehicle, touched overhead power lines and welded itself to the rails! Luckily no-one was hurt.
Many thanks for this Robert, a real action shot, luckily a rarity.
