    Its also showing a stop at Barton and Broughton, I assume one will be water and one a pathing stop (I know water has been taken at Barton in the past?)

    Can't really comment as the only Crewe to Carlisle I have done was a VT trip operated by WCRC so watered at Carnforth.

    Any confirmation yet whether it is Braunton or not, if yes not sure the last time we had Bulleid round the coast?

    Rebuilt Bulleid West Country class 4-6-2 No. 34046 Braunton powers Saphos Trains' 'The Lakelander' charter through Hartford station on 10th July 2021. The train originated at Rugby and was heading to Carlisle via Shap and returning via the Cumbrian Coast route.

    Braunton rushes the northbound Lakelander through Leyland station at 70+ mph with steam to spare.

    Nice footage Graham.
    I like the second shot with Farleton Fell in the background. I scattered my dad's ashes up there, almost 30 years ago now.

    Great picture Ian; I've actually googled Dixons to learn a bit and Wike makes interesting reading. I wonder though who occupies the upper parts of the building ! I shouldn't think that many councils own a chimney !!!
