67020 & 70000 Denchworth 27 July 2012

Oh the indignity! BR 7MT 4-6-2 70000 Britannia is hauled backwards along with support coach M35465 by 67020, seen here passing Denchworth on 27 July 2012. Running as the 5Z91 Bristol Barton Hill to Didcot, this was in order to return Britannia to the Great Western Society to rectify a broken spring. It is surprising in view of how slowly the ensemble was travelling, that it was not routed along the relief line.
