In this video we see two tours both hauled by 2 Stanier designed locomotives; 6201 Princess Elizabeth and Black 5 No. 44932. The video begins at Bristol Temple Meads with a rather hashed shot of 6201 arriving. I had originally thought that it was arriving on Platform 10 so I positioned myself accordingly, however the tour ended up in Platform 5. We then follow some of the light engine movements of "Lizzie" from many locations including on board a First Great Western HST. After the moves had taken place we return to Temple Meads to see 44932 arrive, greeting its cousin with a series of "toots". Not long after 6201 heads for the Lickey incline and her date with 2 pannier tanks. After the departure we leave Bristol and end up at Bradford-Upon-Avon. I had originally planned to see 44932's return run at Keynsham but she left Bristol late and I was forced to make a quick plan. Thanks to my men on the ground (Adam & Jim) I had found out that I could see the tour pass Bradford-Upon-Avon and still make my connection at Salisbury. Unfortunately the light wasn't brilliant and as you can tell from the video the Black 5 did not sound too healthy. Our final shot is at my local, Salisbury. Even more bad news here. The shot shows passengers being de-trained after it was announced that the tour was to proceed no further. 44932 had developed a fault (rumoured to either be a leak in a piston or TPWS fault). 44932 would now be moved to the carriage sidings to be stabled overnight before being dragged to Southall the next day. Not a brilliant way to end the day but it provided some good fun guessing what was going to happen!
