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 ¼ second indicates c 75 mph. This shows the difficulty in trying to get a good shot from the lineside at this speed.
Another ¼ 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.|
