Locomotive Preservation (Sussex) Ltd : The Marquess Goes South West 12/3/67.
The preserved Gresley K4 3442 The Great Marquess visited the Southern for a single railtour duty and is depicted here passing Leigham Junction signal box between Streatham Hill and West Norwood whilst travelling onwards to East Croydon, Brighton and the south coast line through to Southampton after which she went to Eastleigh for servicing. I ended up at Eastleigh and despite a sunny and fairly warm start to the day the weather that greeted us at Eastleigh was dull and bitterly cold with flurries of snow in the air.
