71000 Culham 29 April 1990

8P 4-6-2 71000 Duke of Gloucester approaches Culham on 29 April 1990 with the Great Western Society's Ealing Broadway to Derby 'Midlander II' railtour. Duke of Gloucester had taken over the train at Didcot, and was just getting in to its stride here, hence the customary heavy clag. This was only three weeks after its triumphant return to the main line. Didcot Power Station dominates the background, which in contrast to the locomotive is not emitting anything!
