Britannia


Way back in 2002 BR Standard 70000 Britannia was standing in the sidings behind the LNWR Heritage Age in Crewe. Bought by Pete Waterman in the year 2000, it was the plan to restore it to full main-line working condition. Finally, later this year it is expected to be running and earning again after a long and difficult rebuild. There will then be two Britannia class engines in steam, this one and Oliver Cromwell, 70013

Les Auld: Some interesting videos on there Chris, Cromwell looks great running on the main line. Thanks for the link and the comment.
The magazines are speculating as to how long it will be before the two Brittanias appear together Les. She looks a bit forlorn in this shot.
Les Auld: No matter how much speculation there is Brian it will happen at some time, I would just like to be there to see it. Thanks for the comment.
Still looks good even in wet weather!smile
Les Auld: Which is more than I can say for me Linda, thanks for the comment.
A fine shot of this monster Les.
Les Auld: It did dwarf some of the others there Ron, thanks for the comment.
