Title: Loco spotting

Not sure where to put this, but whilst on back road near Mortimer's Cross, we chanced upon a road bridge over the railway. As we approached. a steam loco with a full rake of  carriages swept underneath us, travelling at (I would guess) about 60 mph.  Further research reveals that it was "Britannia"  on a charter from Exeter to Shrewsbury.    It looked, sounded and smelled remarkable.

That's a 'round the houses' routing, I wonder which way they went?

Nice to see steam excursions happening again, but I can't see how they make any money out of them, with every other seat unoccupied.
