Nice to see at leasone has been restored and is still running on the main line. I have a feeling some still exist for freight though
Pretty it is not but it has a purposeful look about it and I agree with Chris that it is good that at least one is still running restored
A fine shot Les, I hadn't thought about locos like this being preserved and running on specials.
