    It is for 45407 back to the ELR the day after bringing the Jacobite ECS back from Fort William . Not sure if 45407 will lead the stock back unassisted or if a diesel will drag the whole lot back .

    Having brought the 'Jacobite' ECS from Fort William the day before LMS 5MT Class 4-6-0 No. 45407 'The Lancashire Fusilier' departs Carnforth in rather damp conditions and no shortage of steam. Mick Kelly on the regulator fireman unknown, possibly one of IR lads

    A most remarkable way of getting from Leeds to Castelton. Even if there's a gauging problem somewhere on the direct L&Y route, couldn't they go via the LNWR line to the Manchester area?

    Amazing. How many time has she gone that way in the past, I wonder?

    I wonder why she can't go from Lostock Hall round to Farington Junction onto the WCML and save another reversal at Preston?

    That could be just to minimise the distance going tender first.
