431 Selling 1 December 2001

A Class 50 in very unfamiliar territory. 431 (50031 Hood on the other side) is in third rail land as it passes through Selling station (between Faversham and Canterbury) with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z27 06:54 Cardiff Central to Ashford International 'County of Kent' railtour on 1 December 2001. There is a surprising amount of autumn colour still evident on the trees on what is the first day of winter (from a meteorological point of view).
