Having seen the 'Western Finale' pass through Normanton earlier on its northbound journey from Exeter see image 38590, it was possible to intercept it again before it reached York as it ran via Leeds, wher e a brief stop was made, rather than on the direct route through Castleford. The special, hauled by No. 1023 Western Fusilier, is seen here on 12 February 1977 in the deep cutting near Huddleston Grange between Micklefield and Church Fenton.
