33025 & 33116 Hooton 28 January 1995

Class 33s were used to meeting third rail EMUs whilst working on the Southern Region, however this is not the Southern, it is on the Wirral! 33025 Sultan & 33116 Hertfordshire Railtours pass Hooton on 28 January 1995 with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z27 05:20 Swindon to Gladstone Dock 'Gladstone Bag' railtour. The tour had just arrived from the Chester direction behind 56036 (the line goes off to the left by the fence in the background) and after reversing in Hooton station is now heading off towards Frodsham. This manoeuvre has slightly delayed 508125 which is working the 14:40 Ellesmere Port to Liverpool Central service.
