47580 Compton Beauchamp 8 June 2016

47580 County of Essex brings up the rear of the Steam Dreams 1Z72 09:40 Holyhead to Paddington 'Cambrian Coast Express' railtour at Compton Beauchamp on 8 June 2016. LNER A3 4-6-2 60103 Flying Scotsman can be seen at the head of the train. The sun had just disappeared into some cloud coming in from the west, although admittedly it had only been very weak hazy sun. Just how close it was can be seen by the fact that Flying Scotsman is just about to enter the sunny patch, a little further up the line!
