57005 Wickwar 30 January 2008

57005 shines in the morning sunshine as it approaches Wickwar with the 5Z69 Gloucester to Yeovil Junction ECS move conveying Mk 2 coaches 1211 & 5797 on 30 January 2008. It was originally envisaged that this train would go to Meldon conveying the rake of seven Mk 2 coaches that 31454 brought out of Long Marston the previous day. That consist would just about have fitted in this sunlit stretch of track perfectly, instead five of the coaches were left behind at Gloucester.
