5043 Heyford 1 May 2010

Castle Class 4-6-0 5043 Earl of Mount Edgcumbe passes Heyford on 1 May 2010 with the Vintage Trains 1Z88 07:37 Solihull to Didcot Parkway 'Beltane Express' railtour. This was not the location I had in mind for this tour, but a sunnier than expected morning dictated that a location clear of shadows would be needed. Of course the obvious then happens, at the time the train is due the sun is nowhere to be seen!
