Not wrong there Si as they sounded superb at Salterwath an all .
Well done West Coast. More footplate crew needed, but considerably more power than a single Class 8 and much more adhesion to cope with nasty wet rails.
Took a gamble - double headed pan..
45562 & 46115 at Salterwath , Strickland Woods and Mealbank .
The pair could be heard working well before they came into view seen here at High Scales near Scout Green a marvellous sight and sound. My thanks to all at WCR for making this happen today.
Cracking shot John with the exhaust behaving nicely
A mono' version of the pair climbing Shap at Greenholme......................
I've never known the air to be so still on the UK coast! When I arrived the tide was in and there wasn't a ripple on the surface...quite erie actually.
Your bravery paid off handsomely!!
Nice infra red look Steve!
Great stuff Simon. A hair raising performance. Well worth the drive over!
Yes well worth the 5 hour round trip for this marvellous sight and sound over Shap. Great to see you today and I look forward to your company again very soon maybe on the S&C. Many thanks David we all did very well at High Scales today.
Utter Stanier brilliance! That's the shot of the day for me, though a tough call it is with all the wonderful pictures from members today.
For those who are of a pedantic nature a side view shows up the fact that this is a long firebox Jubilee and not Alberta which had the earlier short firebox.
Nice to see the sheep eating grass...my walk over the moors this morning saw them producing next years Lamb cutlets...
As someone who lives the other side of the country, West Coast take a bow because you've made someone's smile just a little bit bigger, two little words and they are Thank you
Awful weather conditions could not spoil the surprise that Carnforth served up today with No. 45562 'Alberta' driven by Mick Rawling with Michael Middleton on
the shovel pilots No 46116 'Scots Guardsman' driven by Steve Chipperfield and fired by Martyn Soames speed over Docker Bridge with first of this years 'Santa
Specials' Roly Parker Guard
Making a tremendous sight and sound and the drivers having change engines, the 'Santa Special' speeds south through Bessy Ghyll wood back to Lancaster
The weather may have been rubbish, but what a treat today was... LMS 5XP No.45562 'Alberta' (LMS 5XP No.45699 'Galatea' in disguise) and LMS 7P No.46115 'Scots Guardsman' double heading passed Shap Wells and Great Strickland - 24th November 2019.
