34067 return 1Z83 'The Welshman' - 11th June 2011

On the outbound journey 34067 could not climb Filton Bank in the Bristol area. Consequently it was rescued by 47500 which had earlier brought a train from London to Bristol for handing over to 6024. 47500 assisted to Cardiff. The return departed 134 mins late, and was 132m late at Romsey where it was held after the Sun Arch for the local train to come along the Chandlers Ford line.
Two pictures of the return train passing Romsey in the dusk at 21:50, with effect of firebox glow.
