60009 Ascott-under-Wychwood 26 August 2017

A4 4-6-2 60009 Union of South Africa approaches Ascott-under-Wychwood on 26 August 2017 with the Railway Touring Company 1Z50 08:08 Paddington to Worcester Shrub Hill 'Cotswold Venturer' railtour. Despite the poor weather, I wasn't going to miss getting a picture of this loco on the Cotswold Line, as with the imminent expiry of its boiler certificate, and with the very real prospect that it will not be steamed again, this may be my last chance!
