photoblog image A Big Bang at Little Burrs

A Big Bang at Little Burrs

 

Part way into the afternoon of the Photo Charter on the East Lancashire Railway, after several successful run pasts, 73129 failed in a vast cloud of smoke and steam as the photograhers in the trackside gallery at Little Burrs looked on.

 

The locomotive had failed with a blown superheater element. So not a successful set of charters on the ELR , two days - two engine failures.

Oh dear, that looks expensive.
Les Auld: I guess so Brian, thanks for the comment.
Dramatic image but no doubt lots of work for the engine buffs to put things right.
Les Auld: Indeed so Martin, thanks for the comment.
