4965 & 5043 Uffington 2 April 2011

Hall Class 4965 Rood Ashton Hall & Castle Class 5043 Earl of Mount Edgcumbe pass Uffington on 2 April 2011 with the Vintage Trains 1Z46 15:50 Didcot to Tyseley 'Coronation Express' railtour. Most participants on this tour had no doubt been inspecting newly restored King Class 6023 King Edward II at Didcot Railway Centre, which was making its public debut in a sparkling coat of British Railways experimental blue paint. Unfortunately the promised sunny afternoon had soon given way to thick cloud rolling in from the west buy the time this train passed Uffington.
