5043 Sapperton Tunnel 19 October 2013

Castle Class 4-6-0 5043 Earl of Mount Edgcumbe is still working hard as it emerges from Sapperton Tunnel on 19 October 2013, despite the fact that it is descending a 1 in 94 gradient. Its hard work is over, having just toiled up the lengthy Sapperton Bank with the Vintage Trains 1Z53 07:40 Tyseley to Oxford 'Cotswold Explorer' railtour.
