50008 West Hatch 31 August 1987

50008 Thunderer passes West Hatch on 31 August 1987 with the late running 1V13 13:10 Waterloo to Exeter St Davids Network SouthEast service. Although the Class 50s were not always the most reliable locomotives on this route, this was one of the few occasions (other than a few total failures) that I encountered any noticeable late running.
