4464 Bittern – Cathedrals Express

Just a quick post today.  En-route to visit family I stopped at Basingstoke to see 4464 Bittern arrive.  Originally 6201 Princess Elizabeth was scheduled to take the service, but she failed yesterday.  Fortunately her super-sub was more than capable of taking its spot.  I had hoped to meet Simon of Brookes Castle at Eastleigh, but unfortunately the Cathedrals Express had a changed route and schedule which meant that will have to happen another day.

P.S. If you haven’t checked out the Brookes Castle blog yet, please do as it is fantastic!
