D1015 Hinksey 10 May 2014

D1015 Western Champion (masquerading on this side of the loco as D1017 Western Warrior) finds a welcome patch of unexpected sunshine, as it passes the south end of Hinksey Yard with the Vintage Trains 1Z52 07:00 Solihull to Plymouth 'One Zulu 48' railtour on 10 May 2014. The return trip (1Z48) utilised GWR Castle Class 4-6-0 5043 Earl of Mount Edgcumbe, recreating 7029 Clun Castle's recorded braking run of half a century before.
