The Fellsman

 

Last Wednesday's Fellsman Steam special from Lancaster to Carlisle and return was hauled by the ex LMS Royal Scot 46115, Scots Guardsman, newly returned to traffic after a number of failures earlier in the year.

 

The train is seen here stopping at Hellifield on the Settle and Carlisle line to take on water, framed by the old Midland Railway cast iron canopy.

 

An hour later she was pulling hard up the bank towards Langho station.

These are wonderful, Les! Great angle and lovely compositions. I particularly love the steam in the second shot. (:o)
Les Auld: Thanks you Rosalyn, you do need a lot of lick, and sun, to get decent shots, I was just lucky.
Love the second image with the steam, Les
Les Auld: It is a bit thunderous Pamela, thanks for the comment.
Both beautiful pictures, I prefer the last one, as there is no disturbing electrical wire in that one
Les Auld: There are very few lines that are not electrified these days Marion, so you do have to pick your spots carefully. Thanks for the commrnt.
A grand sight, Les - who knows, when the diesel runs out, we may be back to steam smile
Les Auld: Somehow I don't really think so Tom, thanks for the comment, but would love to see it.
Two great shots Les especially the lower one.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian, a couple of good locations that I have recently found.
