SLS: The Bullied Pacific Rail Tour 23/5/65
Original Bulleid pacific No. 34051 Winston Churchill had already travelled quite some distance before entering Basingstoke station from Reading West. The tour had originated at Birmingham's Snow Hill station and was probably running well behind schedule by the time this shot was taken as it would continue on to Salisbury where 35017 would take over the haulage duties but already some 49 minutes behind schedule. 34051 had been a Salisbury allocated engine since 1951 but would be withdrawn only four months after this shot was taken.
