Union of South Africa

LNER A4 Class 4-6-2 no 60019 Bittern [4464] which was due to haul The Cathedrals Express London Euston to Chester steam tour was unavailable at the last minute so she was pulled instead by LNER A4 Class 4-6-2 no 60009 Union of South Africa. She arrived nearly on time and filled her tanks with water before continuing. Two Peregrines were mobbing a Crow overhead when she left.
In the evening I met up with Dave, John, Bob Alfie and Ma & Pa Phillips to watch her return but for some reason she was delayed 16 minutes at Rugby before heading south.
