40120 Burton 11Mar78

As the class 40s approached the end of their working lives they not unexpectedly became firm haulage favourites on enthusiast specials. Here no. 40120 takes charge of the "Gwent Valley Invader" as it passes Burton-upon-Trent on 11th March 1978.

 

In contrast to today's scene I seem to recall being the only one on the bridge snapping this - or, put it this way, there was no jockeying for position
