20189 & 20142 Bentley Heath 24 July 2022

20189 & 20142 Sir John Betjeman pass Bentley Heath in the rain on 24 July 2022 with the Vintage Trains 1T50 10:00 Birmingham Snow Hill to Stratford-upon-Avon 'Shakespeare Express' railtour. It was slightly ironic that it was raining, as the 20s were replacing GWR Castle Class 4-6-0 7029 Clun Castle, which was not allowed to run due to Network Rail's steam ban, caused by the previous week's extremely hot weather!
