As mentioned in my previous upload, I had a steam train ride out from Whitby to Goathland on Tuesday of last week. Inspired by posters in the railway memorabilia shops there, for V1 I decided to re-create something similar. The loco 45407 'The Lancashire Fusilier' was built by the Armstrong Whitworth Company, Newcastle in 1937 for the LMS Railway, and I must say that at 10 years older than me it's in better working condition than I am!
It has been based in various parts of the country during it's working life, and it featured in a 1991 episode of 'The Mystery of Hunter's Lodge' by Agatha Christie starring David Suchet. Shot from the footbridge, here it's arriving at Goathland station from Whitby. V5 is the original of V1.
