The Fellsman at Garsdale

 

The Wednesday Steam Special was the Fellsman from Lancaster to Carlisle and return. Hauled by ex LMS Jubilee 5690, Leander, the train heads through Garsdale station on the Settle and Carlisle line on the return leg in the late afternoon.

Les Auld: There are over 350 steam engines in preservation in the UK Louis, but not all are certified for mainline use. So we tend to chase the same ones over and over again. Thanks for the comment.
