5043 Souldern Wharf 11 December 2010

Castle Class 4-6-0 5043 Earl of Mount Edgcumbe passes a very gloomy Souldern Wharf on 11 December 2010 with the Vintage Trains 1Z55 08:24 Birmingham Moor Street to Paddington 'First Moor Street Express'. As the tour's name implies, this was the first steam special to originate from Moor Street. Oddly, there were no other photographers at this location. I have previously managed to get away from the crowds while photographing steam, but that is when I have trekked across the fields. Admittedly this is at the end of a no through road, but it is a proper tarmaced road, and you can park near the bridge, so I've no idea why I was the only person here!
