E5001 Lewes 20 April 1996

E5001 crosses the River Ouse as it accelerates away from Lewes with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z33 05:35 Bristol Temple Meads to Eastbourne 'Southern Coasterman' railtour on 20 April 1996. Unfortunately E5001 has had very few outings on the mainline, which is a pity, as it is the sole surviving Class 71. 750V DC electric locomotives (as opposed to electro diesels or dual voltage locos) were never numerous on the national network.
