    'Bahamas' hurries along the West Coast Main Line north of Preston in the chilly twilight of 03 November 2020, on her way back home to the Worth Valley. A bit grainier than I would like, but probably the last northbound steam around here for a while 45596-LE-WCML-03Nov20-©PAFIN.jpg

    Something I always enjoy when watching steam videos are the reactions of people who just happened to be in the station and had no idea there was a steam train coming through. I'd love to have seen the faces of commuters when this rocked up.

    I think "tuther" in @noelist's post means t'other, ie the other Black 5, 44871, which is staying put for tyre turning.

    Must be a lot cheaper if you can throw in the cost of a crew, coal etc for the movement...

    By jove I suspect you are correct.

    Doesn't any loco going into Riley's need a low loader these days anyway, or are they rail connected now?
