55022 Ashchurch 9 July 2011

55022 Royal Scots Grey speeds through Ashchurch station on 9 July 2011 with the Spitfire Railtours 1Z32 06:15 Doncaster to Paignton 'Devonian' railtour. Although in fine form here, it was not to last, as Royal Scots Grey suffered that well known deltic problem - an exhaust fire near Tiverton. 47804 which is being hidden by the station on the rear of the train in this picture, was added to the front, before continuing to Paignton. It was obviously not a serious fire, as Royal Scots Grey was entrusted with the return run.
