6024 Eckington 2 August 1998

King Class 4-6-0 6024 King Edward I crosses the River Avon at Eckington on 2 August 1998 with the 'Cotswold Venturer' railtour. The tour was steam hauled between Didcot and Worcester via Kemble and return. Needless to say there was a gallery of photographers at this classic spot, however, I was one my own when I saw it a little while later at Compton Beauchamp.
