61306 Charlbury (Cornbury Park) 13 June 2015

Flaming June! B1 4-6-0 61306 Mayflower sends up a huge column of exhaust into the cloudy sky, as it accelerates away from an unscheduled stop at Charlbury station (just out of sight around the corner) and passes Cornbury Park on 13 June 2015 with the Railway Touring Company 1Z27 16:30 Worcester Shrub Hill to Paddington 'Cotswold Venturer' railtour. It had arrived at Charlbury early, and as the HST from London was running late, spent around ten minutes in the station periodically blowing off steam. Unfortunately the train was terminated at Reading due to an incident when the train moved forward slightly and then stopped.
