60163 Knighton 1 March 2010

A1 4-6-2 60163 Tornado passes Knighton (between Didcot and Swindon) with the Steam Dreams 1Z88 08:45 Victoria to Swansea 'St. David's Day Cathedrals Express' railtour on 1 March 2010. Note the two Welsh flags fluttering in front of the smokebox. I do not normally bother with more than one picture of any individual train (not counting a six frame per second burst to make sure I've got it in the prime spot!), and certainly don't bother with a series of shots of the train getting gradually closer. However, after taking the conventional view of Tornado approaching, I couldn't resist this broadside view showing off this fine locomotive in close up.
