    Most of you probably know if you've seen the Bluebell Rly Gala Thread but the Excursion from the BB to Bath Spa on October 5th is now to be hauled by Mayflower instead of Duchess of Sutherland.

    Yes Leander today. Load 11 unassisted. Windy on Shap, steady measured climb. Was tipped off that 6201 would be on this... what a trek up North this has been!

    Running back home from Preston at Brock. The hot water pouring onto the track was looked at by one of the footplate crew shortly after I shot this.

    Tremendous sight and sound as 'Leander' speeds north through Deepthwaite with the Steam Dreams trip to Carlisle, Mick Rawling driving, Craig Potter on the
    shovel and Roly Parker Guard

    C8EC0436-A9CC-4541-8400-3E2AD73B879C.jpeg I have just spent a week in Northumberland and got one shot of Leander on my way home at Wharton. Surprisingly, no clag despite the cool weather and the loco working hard

    Thanks Henry, Agree about Northumberland. We spent a couple of days walking in the Cheviots, getting match fit for Scotland in a few weeks!
