King George V - Final Journey

This was taken in the late 1980's (I think) of the King George V on its final journey as it passed through Hereford Station. This shot was taken in near darkness as she briefly waited in the sidings before puffing out of sight into the history books.

The only King class locomotive to retain its original loading gauge height, hence a static exhibit only. 6023 and 6024 also preserved, but 4 inches lower.
