The Coronation Express passing through Stroud on 2nd April so fast that you hardly see it! It was scheduled as the 6023 but it seems it was the 4695 & 5043 that came through Stroud. Comment left on site: “The tour was to attend the official launch of 6023 at Didcot GWS. 6023 will not appear on the mainline until late 2011, following running in trials on the Mid Norfolk Railway, and visits to the Great Central and Severn Valley Railways. This tour was originally booked to have two of Tyesley’s Halls on it, but Kinlet was unavailable, so the trusty Hall + Castle combination was used.”
