37703 & 37696 Kemble 27 April 1999

The Longbridge to Swindon car body panel trains were usually worked by Class 47s in the mid 1990s. However, on 27 April 1999, a pair of Class 37s were provided. 37703 & 37696 are dwarfed by the Great Western Railway water tower at Kemble, as they arrive at the station with the 4V22 16:03 Longbridge to Swindon empties. Unfortunately the lighting angle is completely wrong at this location, but despite that, I wasn't going to miss a picture of such unusual traction. Three days later, an early finish at work allowed me more time to find a better location for an equally unusual Class 58 worked train.
