Network Rail '57s' in Tonbridge Yard
On the 28th January 2012, four of the six Network Rail class '57s' were present in Tonbridge yard. In this particular illustration, Network Rail's 57306 (nearest the camera) and 57312 top-and-tail four new Ice and Snow control wagons (7095940026, 7095940042, 7095940125 and 7095940018) and are sandwiched between snowplough wagons 7095920010 (nearest the camera) and 7095920069. The bizarre train made a quiet outing to Ashford and return under the headcode 7z99. Shortly after returning to Tonbridge, the consist is photographed settling in one of the far sidings in Tonbridge yard. 57301 and 57310 are at Eastleigh, whilst 57303 worked as the 0Z57 Eastleigh yard to Tonbridge yard and 57305 was already stabled at Tonbridge yard in front of 73141.
