4965 Edstone Aqueduct 9 October 2018

Not one for the purists! Like most photographers, I do not normally take pictures of steam locos running tender first. I have made an exception in this case, as not only is the lighting perfect, but much more importantly it shows the first train run by Vintage Trains as a TOC (Train Operating Company). Hall Class 4-6-0 4965 Rood Ashton Hall is viewed from Edstone Aqueduct working the 5Z65 10:20 Tyseley to Stratford-upon-Avon test run on 9 October 2018.
