Castle class No. 7029 "Clun Castle" pictured at Barton-under-Needwood hauling the first of two Christmas white rose excursions, from Dorridge-York and return. The exhaust drifting over the train was a bit of a pain, but always great to see the Castle in fine voice.

Nostalgia time! To distract myself from my man-flu I've been going through my Dad's old slides (and there are loads!!). Luckily in my note book I have kept a list of the holidays we've had, so it wasn't too hard to work out this was during our 1969 holiday to Cheltenham - I'm pretty certain those rocks are the Devil's Chimney.
