57316 Shorthampton 13 March 2020

57316 brings up the rear the Northern Belle 1Z43 08:30 Paddington to Evesham 'Gold Cup Special' at Shorthampton on 13 March 2020. 57601 Windsor Castle is the lead locomotive. I don't mind going out to my local line for a picture of one of West Coast Railway's 'sludge brown' locos, but I wouldn't normally travel any distance to see one. This is precisely why I abandoned my plans to travel from here to Yorkshire for the Branch Line Society's three day railtour featuring Colas traction, which at the last minute had seen the substitution of a pair of WCR's depressing locos.
