33008 and 33026 near Lye
The driver of 33008 and 33026 puts on the power and accelerates his train away from Stourbridge North Jct. The train is a Bristol - Carlisle charter, the "Crompton Crusader", and it's seen here approaching Lye at 10:27 on Sunday 30th July 1995. Maybe it was due to weekend engineering work, but this train was routed via Shrewsbury rather than Stafford. So after taking this photo I headed off to Admaston, just west of Wellington, to try for a second shot. I beat the train comfortably because it didn't reach Admaston until 11:55, but in the event that second shot wasn't as good as this first one.
