King Edward I test run


6th January 2006

6024 King Edward 1 with its new water carrier

approaching Reading on its run from Kensal Green to Tyseley

Above: still under power as it comes out of Sonning cutting but he shut off as he approached us, below.

Above: still going quite fast as he passed and I was still adjusting the zoom.

Below: Richard (GWR) records the event on video while Frank checks to see if he got the shot he wanted. By a fluke this shot appears to confirm that it is a freight train, as per its 6Z running code.
