66111 Stoke Orchard 6 May 2013

66111 passes the late flowering blackthorn at Stoke Orchard on 6 May 2013, as it heads south with the 6Z16 08:28 Doncaster Belmont to Westbury. This special working was taking the repaired stone hopper wagons back to Westbury. Partly hidden by the bushes is a single VGA van on the rear of the train. It is a pity that this train was running over an hour early, as the sun is still very much head on at this location in the early afternoon.
