It has been quite a while since steam traction was seen at Southport but early on the 4th April ex LMS Stanier 8F 48151 left Chapel Street station at the head of an eleven coach train bound for York. It was grey and wet when it passed through Parbold, 30 minutes out from Southport.
The train arrived back in Southport at 9.26pm and stood quietly at platform 5 as the crowds milled round taking photographs.
