Update 404. 35028 “Clan Line” on loaded test run passing Tamworth, 29/11/10

After completing my household “chores” I was able to get a few hours out to see Clan Line at Tamworth. It was heading south from Crewe on a loaded test run to Northampton, then just loco & support coach to Wimbledon. From reading timings posted on the internet, it was limited to 50mph as far as Stafford, then 75mph to Northampton. 67027 would return with the empty stock.

Drifting steam & a soft exhaust didn’t help as the loco passed by:-
