50001 Tisbury 2 February 1991

With the church of St John the Baptist prominent in the background, a filthy 50001 Dreadnought pulls away from Tisbury with the 1V09 09:15 Waterloo to Exeter St Davids service on 2 February 1991. I had taken very few photos on the Waterloo to Exeter line prior to this, but the impending withdrawal of the Class 50s meant that virtually all free time during 1991 was devoted to photographing them on this former Southern Railway route. Obviously in previous years there were plenty of 50s in my native Oxfordshire to keep me busy!
