4965 Hatton North Junction 9 October 2018

Hall Class 4-6-0 4965 Rood Ashton Hall comes off the Stratford-upon-Avon line at Hatton North Junction on 9 October 2018 with the 5Z68 16:35 Stratford-upon-Avon to Tyseley test run. This was the return working of a pair of out and back crew training runs, and marked the first occasion that Vintage Trains Limited had operated a train under their newly acquired Train Operating Company licence. A surprising amount of clag, complimented by perfect evening lighting, although any later and the shadows would have been a real problem.
