6201 Baulking 19 June 2010

Miserable weather at Baulking on 19 June 2010, as Princess Royal Class 4-6-2 6201 Princess Elizabeth heads west along the Great Western Mainline with the Vintage Trains 1Z53 07:06 Solihull to Swansea 'Red Dragon' railtour. 47773 can just be seen on the rear of the train. 6201 had taken over from GWR Castle Class 5043 Earl of Mount Edgcumbe at Foxhall Junction, Didcot. The train is still accelerating, after waiting briefly on the relief line at Challow. Obviously the wait was shorter than intended, because at this point the train is running ten minutes ahead of schedule.
