Update 861. 5043 “Earl of Mount Edgcumbe” storms up Old Hill bank, 19/10/13

This is the return run of the Cotswold Explorer from Oxford to Tyseley. There had been a schedule for a diesel to run to Worcester to assist the train up the bank, but I was told it had not run. Presumably the load was well within the capabilities of the loco, and I think if you watch the video you’ll agree there was no need for assistance.
