60009 Union of South Africa

Torrential rain prevented us from watching the Union of South Africa over Harringworth Viaduct so we decided to pitch up at Kettering Station where there was a bit more cover and less chance of flooding. Unfortunately everybody else had similar ideas so views were limited on the narrow platform till we eventually chose to get soaked battling against Network Rail fencing by using Dave’s car as a platform.
