Great Western Railway @ Peterborough

The rare site of a GWR engine taking on water at Peterborough during what must have been a special railtour. Pictured is #7029 Clun Castle which was withdrawn from service in 1965 – the date on the rear of this photo. In 1967, the same engine made a number of special railtours from Kings Cross and this may actually be one of those tours.

One of the first engines ever to be preserved, Clun Castle is currently awaiting boiler work at its preservation home in Tyseley, near Birmingham.
