SCTS: Southern Counties Enterprise 25/8/63.
On the day prior to this shot Gresley A3 pacific no. 60112 St. Simon had made its way from Peterborough to Nine Elms mpd in glorious sunshine and I had photographed it at Clapham Junction and Nine Elms as can be seen elsewhere in this set of images. The following morning, a Sunday, was the polar opposite weather-wise and I was greeted with heavy rain at Clapham Cutting when the tour train passed through. The resultant attempt at a colour shot was one of myy own most dismal failures and sharp images of this tour are thin on the ground. This one is a gem but I'm not sure of the exact location.
