35028 Challow 6 October 2021

The perils of steam photography! The exhaust from Merchant Navy Class 4-6-2 35028 Clan Line completely obscures the train, as it accelerates away from its brief stop on the down relief line near Denchworth, and passes Challow on 6 October 2021 with the Belmond British Pullman 1Z28 08:46 Victoria to Bristol Temple Meads 'Historic Bath By Steam' railtour. This was midweek, but amazingly, another steam charter was stopped in the loop directly behind it!
