46203 Birkett Common 16 September 1995

Princess Royal Class 4-6-2 46203 Princess Margaret Rose passes Birkett Common on 16 September 1995 with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z27 12:50 Carlisle to Didcot Parkway 'Cumbrian Mountain Express' railtour. I had hoped for better weather here, after seeing the train in poor light near Kirkby Thore, but unfortunately the curse if the Settle & Carlisle struck again, and there was no sun at the required time!
