5029 Wolvercote Junction 19 June 1994

Castle Class 4-6-0 5029 Nunney Castle comes off the Cotswold Line at Wolvercote Junction on 19 June 1994 with the 'Cotswold Venturer' railtour. This tour originated at Paddington and was steam hauled from Didcot, the outward route being via Swindon and the 'Golden Valley' line to Cheltenham. With both mainline routes across the Cotswold Hills being covered, the tour certainly lived up to its name. Note that the Royal Mail liveried support coach at the head of the train does a reasonable job at blending in with the maroon coaching stock.
