6024 Culham 14 November 1998

The perils of steam photography! While the exhaust shows up well in the weak morning light, the excess of steam from everywhere but the chimney does is best to blot out King Class 4-6-0 6024 King Edward I as it passes Culham on 14 November 1998 with the Didcot to York 'Ports to Port Express' railtour. Not one for the perfectionists, but I now quite like the atmospheric effect, and of course the view is now historic, as an even bigger steam generator can be seen in the background - the now closed Didcot Power Station.
