A 'Castle' struggles towards Sapperton Tunnel with an Up Parcels
View SW, down the Golden Valley towards Stroud and Gloucester; ex-GWR Swindon - Gloucester main line. No. 4085 'Berkeley Castle, now (in 1961) not feeling very well and has been demoted by Diesels from the express duties it had served for most of its previous 35 years; it survived until 5/62. It is at Frampton Crossing about half way up the gruelling climb from Brimscombe to Sapperton Tunnel.
