57316 Wolvercote Junction 17 February 2019

Running half an hour late due to an extended stop at Birmingham International, 57316 passes Wolvercote Junction on 17 February 2019 with the 1Z54 11:32 Derby to Swindon Northern Belle luxury charter. I initially wasn't going to bother with this, but as it was still mainly sunny at midday, and with the prospect of a Pullman liveried loco on appropriate stock, I ventured out. Needless to say the sun immediately disappeared, and the Pullman liveried loco was on the rear. West Coast Railway's sludge brown 57s look awful at the best of times, but the livery looks particularly dire in this atrocious light, To add insult to injury the sun came out again when I got back home!
