50031 Tiverton Parkway 1 November 1997

50031 Hood approaches Tiverton Parkway on 1 November 1997 with the Past Time Rail 1Z50 05:50 Euston to Plymouth 'Pilgrim Hoover' railtour. This was the first mainline outing for a preserved Class 50. I certainly wasn't going to miss this, despite the fact that I had almost got fed up of seeing Hood virtually every time I went to the West of England six years earlier!
