The Green Duchess

 

Thursday evening and 46233, the Duchess of Sutherland, stands in the rain at Preston Station having hauled the Glasgow - Preston leg of the round Britain steam tour, Great Britain V.

 

Recenlty repainted into British Rail Green she looke magnificent even in the dim grey light.

Think every one would have been snapping this one Les and not the modern one to the left.

Superb capture.
Les Auld: They were indeed Peter, thanks for the comment.
Take out the train in the background and this could have been taken back in the mid 50's.
Les Auld: I was hoping the Voyager would have left before the Duchess but it was not to be Brian, thanks for the comment.
