A4 no.60009 ‘Union of South Africa’ with ‘The Christmas White Rose’ 01/12/12

A4 no.60009 'Union of South Africa' is seen passing through Doncaster with the return leg of the RYTC tour 'The Christmas White Rose' from Cambridge to York. She was running ahead of the delayed 17.58 Reading train and was held outside the station for a short while waiting for a freight to cross the station heading for Sheffield. She then accelerated through to much whistling, a fine sight, summed up by my fiancee (who I persuaded to go out 45 mins early on our way out for the evening to catch the tour) who said that was quite good actually! 01/12/12
