6024 Thrupp 27 December 1996

King Class 4-6-0 6024 King Edward I starts the assault of Sapperton Bank as it passes Thrupp with the Worcester to Didcot 'Devonian' railtour on 27 December 1996. A slightly odd name for a railtour from Worcestershire to Oxfordshire! Although it was a miserably dull day, a near perfect exhaust against an impressive background makes up for the dire weather.
