A Historic Pairing


On Wednesday afternoon the new build A1 locomotive 60163, Tornado, hauled the A4 locomotive Mallard from the National Railway Museum in York to the NRM at Shildon in the north east of England.

They are seen here leaving York, taken from the wrong side of the tracks as the sun was almost directly behind the train.

Fantastic trains, I remember taking my young son many years ago to see 'Sir Nigel Gresley' pass through Beaconsfield on regular Sunday steam runs from Marylebone in the mid eighties.
Good shot.
Les Auld: There is just something about a big steam engine on the mainline John, thanks for the comment.
