WATCH: Steam locomotive 7029 Clun Castle at Cradley Heath

Thursday 7th March 2019 saw GWR Castle No.7029 Clun Castle return to the mainline with Vintage Trains.

The return followed its overhaul, which has seen the locomotive out of service for around 30 years.

In this video, 7029 is seen passing Cradley Heath on its private charter, with a Class 47 on the rear.

Missed a chance to see this locomotive? Don’t worry! There is plenty of upcoming tours coming in 2019 – make sure you keep an eye on this page to hear the timings.

A huge thanks to Callum Calvert for sending in this video footage for us to use on this channel. You can see his channel here.
