GWR Castle Class #7029 “Clun Castle” on a special Kings Cross to Newcastle charter train at Peterborough station in September 1967.

Having been withdrawn from mainline duties in December 1965, “Clun Castle” was purchased for preservation the following year for a mere £2,400. A regular mainline presence in the 1980s was followed by a 31 year break before returning in 2019 from its adopted home at Tyseley near Birmingham.
