The run was superb - a storming ascent of Sapperton and some fast running in both directions on the main line. 40 minutes early into Paddington and then an hour early back to Gloucester. A shame that NR couldn't find us an earlier path back to Brum so we all had to sit in Gloucester for an extra hour forlornly hoping that we would get underway.
Cream crackered now - very long day.
Pics from me. Vids from other folks.
Waiting to leave Gloucester this morning
I can't really call this 'old and new'. How about... 'old and very old' at the buffers. I haven't checked, but I wonder which has had the longer time in main line service.
Back in Gloucester this evening.
A couple of vids on Sapperton and one on the main line.
