Steam train March 2019

The advance information suggested that Leander would be pulling the excursion along the Cumbrian Coastal line “depending on availability”. In the event it was an unnamed locomotive 48151, which passed through on a very blustery afternoon. A number of people had ventured out to see it. The humid conditions gave atmosphere to the clouds of steam as the engine began to pull out of the station, with a long line of coaches behind it.

      1. I think that will do! Not everybody would do the hanging about, but our eldest son would. A few years ago we went to Quainton (Oxfordshire, nearish to us) to a railway rally and enjoyed a trip up and down the line on a steam train – great fun!
