Up and Down workings passing each other on the double track section through the Welwyn Tunnels are not uncommon. This scene occurred 10.41 Thurs 09 July 2015. An UID Class 91 pushing a Mk4 set south and a pair of Class 365 EMUs heading north. The rear unit is one of the surviving special vinyl jobs which is likely to succumb under the ongoing overhaul and repainting programme.
