A cracking shot Dave. I missed this one, I have only been skimming the Steam Railtours web page recently and I assume that when it listed this as Crewe to York I presumed that it wasn't passing Wigan.

Caught it beautifully Dave. Looks in good nick. Kicking yourself John?

A better shot would have been from the other side, that way you would have captured all the coaches too.
But never the less a nice shot.

Nice one Dave, clear as crystal as usual.
DAVE, could i refer you to a St Georges Primary School photo uploaded today in Album, i'd like your opinion please.

Neil - there was a modern electric thing bound for Liverpool on the other side.

I wonder what the old Footplatemen would make of these 'scrubbed - up' engines! I should imagine if they see them in spirit they would be dancing with glee! (I wouldn't be surprised if they are aboard)

I like that thought, Vb. x.

Thankyou Irene. Since reading "A Footplateman Remembers" I see the trains with a different eye and quite an emotional one at that especially because of Len!
Comment by Johnny on 19th June 2016 at 10:24
Great to see the old engines still preserved, scrubbed up as Vb says and in service!
As kids always exciting a train journey!

What a cracking shot, that is all I can say
