    My footage of her echoing through The Golden Valley as she roars up Sapperton Bank towards the Tunnel. Enjoy.

    Another enjoyable trip with 7029. I was seated next to @Davo who proved to be enthusiastic company; it was good to put a face to the name.

    Here are some photos I took at Worcester and Oxford.

    Great to see so many great clips and shots of today's tour. Here's my effort as 7029 powers past Frampton Mansell. Riding behind Clun Castle as a 10 year old on the special to mark the last day of through services from Snow Hill to Birkenhead I could never have imagined seeing her again in full cry 54 years later! Thanks as always to all who made today happen.

    Not the weather I hoped for today, but not to worry as 7029 was in great form! I'm guessing some of the mark 1's are the riviera stock?

    Seen at Dorridge, Blakedown, Worcester, Sapperton and Fawler. First time seeing 7029 and I can't wait for next weekend to catch her again after her performance today!

    Out of interest where did you get the name from? I’m from Tewkesbury and we’ve always called it Natton crossing locally, is that the official name? Great footage btw!!!

    Yes correct. I now have all the coach weights so can work out the train weight if somebody knows the weight for 47773.

    Does anybody know the weight of 47773 so I can calculate the train weight but looks to be quite heavy equal to 11 at least

    Nice shot, pity about the machine gunning photographer spoiling the sound.
