4965 & 4836 Milton 10 March 2001

Steam power old and new, although in this case the old has now outlived the new! Hall Class 4-6-0s 4965 Rood Ashton Hall & 4936 Kinlet Hall get into their stride at Milton on 10 March 2001 with the 06:16 Colchester to Bristol Temple Meads 'Bristolian' railtour, which they had just taken over at Didcot. As can be seen from the Class 60 hauled MGR train in the background, Didcot Power Station was still very much in use. However, just over a decade later this 2,000 megawatt plant was shut down, unfortunately thereby lowering the nation's generating capacity reserve.
