67006 Goring 12 April 2008

In clear early morning light, 67006 Royal Sovereign approaches Goring with the Kingfisher Railtours 1Z29 06:07 Taunton to Folkestone 'Golden Arrow' railtour on 12 April 2008. Southern Railway 'Battle of Britain' Class 4-6-2 34067 Tangmere would take over the tour at Willesden. This location between Didcot and Reading was chosen because the lighting would be at the perfect angle for the three railtours that were due in quick succession. Unfortunately, only this one (the least interesting) was in full sun and on the anticipated main line rather than the relief line on the right!
