Steam in Gloucestershire!
LMS Jubilee 45699 Galatea (as Sierra Leone) at Stonehouse crossing on the 1Z42 07.00 Padd -WSH on Saturday 18th February 2023. Jubilee 45699 Galatea was masquerading as its long-gone stable mate 45627 Sierra Leone, as it worked The Cotswold Venturer, a Railway Touring Company special from London Paddington to Worcester Shrub Hill.
You can’t beat seeing a Jubilee blasting along on a winter’s day! Also, note there's no diesel on the rear of this train.
