4270 Hailes 6 September 2015

The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway's resident heavy freight tank loco, 42xx 2-8-0T 4270, passes the last few Rosebay Willowherb flowers at Hailes on 6 September 2015, as it works the 11:10 Toddington to Cheltenham Racecourse service. This was supposed to be a totally sunny day, but note the unforecast clouds building up in the background.
