5029 & 6024 Compton Beauchamp 28 June 2010

Castle Class 4-6-0 5029 Nunney Castle & King Class 4-6-0 6024 King Edward I make light work of the Steam Dreams 1Z32 17:38 Bristol Temple Meads to Paddington 'Cornish Riviera Express' on 28 June 2010. It had earlier in the day worked up from the West Country as the 1Z31 09:07 Penzance to Bristol. The train having worked down to Penzance two days previously. Unfortunately, after a completely sunny day, a bank of thick cloud rolled in from the west just a few minutes before the train was due. However, as this would have been a very backlit picture, perhaps the more subdued light is a blessing in disguise!
