Bittern at Grosmont Shed


One of the stars of the Spring Gala at the North Yorkshire Moors railway was Sir Nigel Gresley's A4 class 60019, Bittern. Seen here in the yard at Grosmont.

More pictures of the Gala may be found on my Flickr site here.

Superb, Les. I saw "Bittern" on the West Somerset Railway last year. She oozes style.

I enjoyed your Flickr set very much; excellent stuff.
