45112 Fladbury 31 January 2007

If asked what would be one of the most unusual workings to see in on the national network in 2007, a 'Peak' with a freight on the Cotswold Line would be very high on the list, yet on 31 January 2007 just such an event did happen. 45112 Royal Army Ordnance Corps worked the 4Z47 07:45 Chaddesden to Long Marston, conveying twelve KAA wagons, and is seen here approaching Fladbury. Four days previously the loco had worked a farewell railtour as the fact that it is not fitted with OTMR equipment meant that it would shortly be banned from the mainline.
