No. 20 leads the way

 

The Furnace Railway Trust's flagship locomotive, No. 20, leads the Pecket 0-4-0 tank, John Howe, along the Ribble Steam Railway during the Winter Gala last Sunday. The smoke at the rear is from the Austerity 0-6-0 tank locomotive.

 

No. 20 is th eoldest working standard gauge steam locomotive in Britain and is now based at the Ribble Steam Railway although it will spend much of it's time travelling around the network of preserved lines.

Another great capture Les nearly three at a time.
Isn't it good to see No.20 on the move, I had this pleasure at the GCR two years ago.
