The Roaring Monster Special
Just enough time on Friday morning to make the trip up to Preston to catch Britannia Class 70013, Oliver Cromwell, on the Roaring Monster Special before heading down to Somerset for the West Somerset Steam Gala.
The train is also known as the Cumbrian Mountains Express, operated by the Railway Touring Company, it runs from Crewe to Carlisle via the West Coast Main line over Shap and returns on the SettleCarlisle Railway.
The sound as she left was just superb with the exhaust note echoing back from the bridges and building of Preston.
