Downbound Train

By Rob66
The principal express service on the west coast rail route to Scotland was 'The Royal Scot', the 'down' train left London Euston for Glasgow at 10am each morning, the corresponding 'up' train going in the opposite direction, this service was a competitor to the east coast route's 'Flying Scotsman'.
Here we see the 71 year old 6233 Duchess of Sutherland rolling back the years as it speeds northwards near Wigan on the 30th May 2009.

Thanks for looking.
