Summer on the S&C

By robincoombes
Summer on the Settle and Carlisle. The long slog done the fireman can relax as immaculate Black 5 No 45305 with a full rake of maroon Mark 1 carriages climbs the last few yards to the summit at Ais Gill with the stunning backcloth of Wild Boar Fell.

The engine and stock are typical of an express on this line during the 1950s and early 60s, and just for once the sun popped out. Have waited a long time for all the elements to come together. Just how close it was the rear of the train is in cloud!
