Help for Heroes Special


Saturday saw the Help for Heroes Charity charter train run from Lancaster to York. Greeted by the standards of local British Legion branches and Territorial soldiers, 70013, renumbered as 70048 Territorial Army especially for the occasion, and Stanier 8f 48151, the train arrives at Preston station on the outward journey. Both locomotives were looking very smart in the morning sun. Originally 46115, Scots Guardsman, was rostered for the train but failure last month meant that 48151 had to be substituted.
