5080 Blunt's Green 16 April 1990

Castle Class 4-6-0 5080 Defiant passes Blunt's Green (between Henley-in-Arden and Danzey) on 16 April 1990 with the late running 17:15 Stratford-upon-Avon to Tyseley 'Shakespeare Express' railtour. Unfortunately this locomotive is no longer in running order, being at static exhibit at the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre at Quainton. At least it is still in much better condition than when I climbed all over it as a child when visiting Barry scrapyard!
