My tribute to 60009.
A few shots of her in action over the last six years:
Here is my tribute video to Number 9, enjoy.
And a few from me. I hope last Saturday's Yorkshireman doesn't turn out to be the last time I see her in steam.

Now we know its had its last swan song, here is my compilation.
No 9 where she belonged the ECML
Very nice Henry, thanks for sharing those
A nice set there Henry.
ECML yes but as 60009 was one of the A4s synonymous with the 3hr Aberdeen expresses so for me Scotland is just as much a spiritual home for the loco, and especially on the Stirling to Perth line where I first saw then as a youngster in the early 60s.
These shots are from 1993 when No9 was used for crew training runs between Perth and Springburn, I wish I had spent more time on these.

And the B&T.
Is that near Morpeth Henry? If so I was on that run from Cleethorpes in 2007? Andrew
Yes Andrew it was 19/5/2007
Though it was Henry, Thanks for that. It was a good run on that day?
My collection of footage of No. 9 from over the past few years, mainly East Lancs footage, but also her climbing Camden Bank, arriving into Kings Cross, on last years Great Britain railtour, NYMR Gala with K1 62005 and a light engine movement with 61994 back in 2007.
Footage of 09 hard at work at various locations .Thank you Mr Cameron for making this possible .
A fine tribute to Mr Camerons warhorse
