photoblog image The Princess Elizabeth

The Princess Elizabeth

 

Saturday saw two steam specials in the North West. The Cumbrian Mountain Express was hauled by Stanier's ex LMS engine 6201, Princess Elizabeth, for the second week on the run. Seen here arriving at Lancaster, she then went onto Carnforth and was watered there before moving out onto the West Coast Mainline.

The second steam special was the Lakelander from Newport to Ravenglass, steam hauled by 48151 from Carnforth.

You had plenty of opportunities that day Les and made the best of them.
Les Auld: Certainly did Brian, thanks for the comment.

Browsing your archive and these photos look as though they came out of the pages of a history book. Each image is very well done
Les Auld: Thanks Jennnie, glad you like them.
