60163 Ardley Tunnel 30 December 2011

My first photographic outing of 2011 was in atrocious light, and so was the last! A1 4-6-2 60163 Tornado emerges from Ardley Tunnel into the drizzle on 30 December 2011 with the UK Railtours 1Z27 08:03 Paddington to Stratford-upon-Avon 'William Shakespeare' railtour. Nobody else had bothered to walk to this location on such a gloomy day, but then again this spot is no use at all if there is any chance of sun.
