No Sun at Compton Beauchamp

By the time 71000 "Duke of Gloucester" arrived on 1Z40, a Cathedrals Express railtour from Southend to (appropriately) Gloucester, the sun had disappeared completely.

71000 was substituting for 60163 "Tornado" which had failed its FTR exam the previous day.

The tour was running around 45 mins late due to a late start and the need for an additional water stop at Willesden

It's just as well there is virtually no exhaust visible, the wind was gale force and would have ripped it to shreds
