60009 Union of South Africa 22/12/2012

A very very wet day sees LNER A4 Class 60009 Union of South Africa powering up the steep climb from Manton Junction to Oakham station in Rutland, 5 minutes early, pulling the Railway Touring Company Christmas Yorkshireman, from Victoria to York via Kettering. After this I leap in the car, for a dash back home to catch engine 2 of the day
