The returning Steam Dreams Cathedrals express Euston-Chester-Euston with No70000 Britannia in charge. Photographed at Atherstone just after a water stop at the station.
There was quite a large gallery on the footbridge where we were standing and a lot of the local people came out of their houses to watch her pass. Other photographers were spread out along the line behind us and unfortunately for them a Pendolino came in the opposite direction completely wiping out any chance of them getting a shot of the whole train.
