It seems a while since I last managed to photograph some main-line steam so a quick trip up to Preston yesterday allowed me to catch the return leg of the Mersey Moorlander, a train that runs every Monday in August from Crewe to Carlisle via Liverpool Lime Street station.
The train was steam hauled from Preston to Carlisle and return and then diesel hauled for the rest of the journey. Here ex-LMS STanier Black 5 has decoupled from the train and is running light engine to Crewe Heritage Centre and is being replaced by Class 47 diesel 47580, County of Essex, for the final leg.
