55022 Natton 18 September 2010

55022 Royal Scots Grey passes Natton (near Ashchurch) with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z50 06:50 Crewe to Robeston 'Western Wales Explorer' railtour on 18 September 2010. Where was the early morning sunshine that the Met Office forecast? Answer - five minutes after the train had passed! The Deltic was substituting for D1015 Western Champion, which has had to be withdrawn due to engine problems. Luckily the railtour title can be read either way. After all, Robeston is in the west of Wales!
