'The Auld Reekie' on the 3rd March 2019 hauled by LNER A1 No.60163 'Tornado' seen on the climb out of Leeds to Cross Gates.
Video Available Here
My video of Tornado at Adwick,and then again near Crossgates is now up here:
Looks and sounds great! Thanks for sharing Simon
I hope someone is out later to get the Deltic in full howl mode....
There is a YouTube clip of it at Swinton going some and doing Ilkley Moor bah tat on the horn.
I'm sure they will...meanwhile she's not far behind Tornado on the ECML
Wonder if she'll pass Tornado at Berwick or Granthouses?
Or even couple her on the rear?
Deltic now looped at Acklington.
Durham to Berwick in 83 min for 81 miles. Not quite even time but there was the small matter of Newcastle to get through.
And as my sailing friend would say..."Nothing broke and nothing fell off" !
Yes some smart running, cruising in low - mid 70s. Inside even time from Durham before Tweedmouth slowing.
Newcastle - Berwick Sta 63 m 08s pass to pass for the 67 or so miles.
Longhoughton bank taken in its stride, min 66 after 73 thro Alnmouth.
Looks like train booked to overtake us at Grantshouse cancelled?
If it was 1S91 then yes it's cancelled.
At 14:03 the Deltic is just two sections behind Tornado approaching Grantshouse !!
About 7 miles....
Tornado seems to be held at a red signal just before Drem, and the Deltic just 1 section behind. Possibilty of attaching the Deltic on the back now?
Just seen the stopper from Berwick been let out in front of Tornado. Reminds me of the Top Gear run.
And looking at RTT they are both due in Edinburgh at the same time....
