55022 Hinksey 12 June 2010

55022 Royal Scots Grey accelerates past the south end of Hinksey Yard on 12 June 2010 with the Spitfire Railtours 1Z56 15:22 Oxford to Preston (via Kings Cross) 'Capital Deltic' railtour. I had deliberately chosen this location as the dark vegetation in the background would show up the exhaust if the loco decided to throw out any clag. That part of the plan worked well, but unfortunately the sun didn't appear at the critical moment! 57601 is just out of sight on the rear of the train.
