Passing Brock Crossing, just north of Preston, on the West Coast Mainline, Stanier Black 5, 44871, and Jubilee Class 5690, Leander double-head the train towards Carlisle.
The wreath & Jacobite headboard are in memory of Paul Kane, a West Coast Rail fireman who died on the footplate a fortnight ago at Stevenage. The reason for the Jacobite headboard was that he fired on many a occasion in the Highlands especially on the Jacobite train that runs on the Fort William-Mallaig line.
The weather was deteriorating and the light was quite poor so not a good picture but a record of an occasion none the less.
