57001 Grove 12 July 2011

57001 moves very slowly along the up relief line at Grove on 12 July 2011, approaching its booked twenty minute stop at Wantage Road, with the Royal Scotsman 1Z30 14:59 Bath to Oxford 'Grand Tour of Britain' luxury charter (a bargain at 8,270!). This is part of a seven day tour, with today's route including Hereford, Bath and then on to the Nene Valley Railway. 37685 can just be seen on the rear of the train. As the weather was poor, I was going to photograph this train at Uffington, but realising that I did that in 2010, I opted for this little used location instead.
