Not in Hadnall but on the line to Wellington near Allscott, we waited in the murk for GWR No 5043 Earl of Mount Edgecombe on a circular trip to Ludlow from Birmingham called the "The Welsh Marches".  She "roared" past doing around 60mph - fabulous sound!

45699 Galatea passed through Hadnall with the West Coast Railway's Welsh Border train.  It was a bright sunny afternoon so viweing from the west  gave great lighting and the wind blew the smoke away from cameras too.
