4936 Blakedown 30 December 2000

Hall Class 4-6-0 4936 Kinlet Hall passes Blakedown on 30 December 2000 with the Past Time Rail 1Z40 08:08 Stratford-upon-Avon to Newport 'Taffy Apple' railtour. Perfect photographic conditions of sunshine and snow, but despite selecting a low viewpoint, the train has been largely obscured by drifting exhaust. The loco had only returned to the mainline a few months earlier, after not having been steamed for 36 years.
