24081 Hailes 9 July 2010

How much Rosebay Willowherb can you get in one picture? Quite a lot if you stand in the right place and use a short telephoto lens to compress the perspective! 24081 passes a huge patch of the trackside weed as it emerges from underneath the road bridge at Hailes with the 13:25 Toddington to Gotherington service on 9 July 2010, during the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway's Diesel Gala. The Friday was principally a 'Shunterfest' event, although there were a few Type 1 & 2 diesel turns, such as this.
