67005 South Marston 11 February 2017

Luxury travel for rugby fans! Royal train liveried 67005 Queen's Messenger leads the VSOE Pullman stock past South Marston on 11 February 2017 with the 1Z60 11:15 Victoria to Cardiff Central rugby special. Thus was running 20 minutes early, having missed out its booked stop in the loop at Challow. Use of the Orient Express stock on a rugby special seems a bit of a turnaround from the days of football specials in the 1970s!
