6024 Aynho Junction 7 December 1991

King Class 4-6-0 6024 King Edward I blasts past Aynho Junction on 7 December 1991 with the Paddington to Stratford-upon-Avon 'William Shakespeare' railtour. This was the King's first visit to Paddington since restoration. Unusually, it had not travelled through Reading and Oxford, but via the Chiltern Line, which probably explains the fine exhaust here, as it opens up after rejoining the Oxford route at Aynho Junction, just out of sight around the corner.
