2409 Hailes 25 August 2001

An unrepeatable scene on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway. Hunslet 0-6-0ST 2409 King George passes Hailes with the 12:15 Toddington to Gotherington service on 25 August 2001. The mass of Rosebay Willowherb and other assorted vegetation on the right has now been replaced by Hayles Abbey Halt (opened in 2017), and the little red loco is no longer on the railway, and is no longer red, as it is unfortunately being converted into Thomas The Tank Engine at Didcot!
