6000 Brimscombe 21 August 1985

King Class 4-6-0 6000 King George V coasts downhill past Brimscombe on 21 August 1985 with the one of the Swindon to Gloucester specials, run in connection with the GW150 celebrations. The people in the background are being relatively restrained, just congregating around the footpath crossing. In other places there was lots of blatant trespass, which seemed to be largely ignored in the 1980s. It certainly wouldn't be now!
