5043 Claydon (Oxfordshire) 15 October 2011

Great Western sunrise! Castle Class 4-6-0 5043 Earl of Mount Edgcumbe is pictured just as the first rays of sunshine break through the early morning mist at Claydon on 15 October 2011. It is working the Vintage Trains Ltd 1Z43 07:05 Solihull to Bristol Temple Meads 'Berks & Hants Aquae Sulis' railtour. I particularly like the way the very low sun has tinged the exhaust yellow.
