5051 Culham 12 June 1983

Castle Class 4-6-0 5051 Drysllwyn Castle has just set fire to the embankment, as it passes Culham on 12 June 1983 with the Paddington to Stratford-upon-Avon 'William Shakespeare' railtour, which the loco had taken over at Didcot. Shortly after the train had passed, there was the bizarre sight of a fire engine driving across the field in the background in an attempt to get to the fire!
