60019 Soldridge 9 February 2008

A4 4-6-2 60019 Bittern drifts down the gradient from Medstead & Four Marks with the 11:55 Alton to Alresford service on the Mid Hants Railway, and approaches Soldridge on 9 February 2008. A little incongruous perhaps for an A4 with just five coaches in Southern Railways green, but not as out of character as when it came back later running tender first!
