D213 Fiddington 3 June 2021

With the Cotswold Hills in the background, D213 Andania passes Fiddington on 3 June 2021 with the Saphos Trains 1Z72 16:03 Bristol Temple Meads to Lancaster 'Welsh Marches Whistler' railtour. This was slightly misnamed, as the Welsh Marches section of the tour was worked by LMS Steam locos 45231 & 46100 Royal Scot, with D213 merely tagging along on the rear. After the train had passed, I had the surreal experience of getting a lift back down the very rough track to where my car was parked in a 1943 ex US Army Dodge command truck! The owner had driven over the bridge in the vehicle just before the tour arrived, and had stopped on the way back to watch the train!
