71000 Duke of Gloucester

with The Sunny South Express to Weymouth

near Fleet and Micheldever on 3rd August 2005

Passing Fleet ponds at speed a few minutes late.
 

Distance covered in about second indicates c 75 mph. This shows the difficulty in trying to get a good shot from the lineside at this speed.

 

Another second later.

 

Passing Micheldever at speed, and now a couple of minutes early....must have been a very short water stop at Winchfield!

 
A final shot as the train leaves Micheldever. Unfortunately a failure of a steam pipe brought this fine run to an untimely end a short while later.
