34046 Sapperton 17 May 2014

Rebuilt West Country Class 4-6-2 34046 Braunton makes light work of the 1 in 60 Sapperton Bank on 17 May 2014 with the Railway Touring Company 1Z37 09:34 Gloucester to Worcester Shrub Hill (via Swindon and Oxford) 'Welsh Borders' railtour. Unfortunately, although the loco is working hard, the warm morning ensures there is barely a trace of exhaust visible.
