A 30742 Photo charter on the Battlefield line in remembrance of an SLS Farewell tour special train which ran 60 years ago on the 4th of January 1959 to commemorate the closing of the Wye Valley Lines from Monmouth to Ross on Wye and Chepstow to passenger traffic. The train was top and tailed using two Collett 64XX pannier tank locos No's 6412 and 6439
There are a couple of images which are fairly similar in this collection. The reason being that while this night shoot was going on the Quadrantids Meteor shower was happening and some of the shooting stars can be seen in those images.
As usual I have added a black and white gallery of shots taken at this charter please follow this ling.. http://rickeborall.zenfolio.com/p873874398
