Default Photos of Winton Train

This week have run a very special train through half of Europe. It was Winton Train named in honour of sir Nicholas Winton, who privately organized transport of Jewish children from Czechoslovakia to the United Kingdom 70 years ago. The train featured vintage cars and it was hauled only by steam locos.

So far, there are no photos of this train on RPN. If you see any such added, link it to this thread!

The stock for the Winton train was diesel worked from Eastleigh via the GWS centre at Didcot to pick up the locomotive. The 2 locos then worked to Harwich ready for the commemorative train the next day.

I photographed the empty stock move as it left Didcot with 60163 Tornado carrying the Winton Train headboard, but seconds before the train passed me a cloud arrived.
