The Blackpool Flyer

By Rob66
The Duchess storms up the West Coast Main Line north of Wigan with Saturdays 'Fylde Coast Express'.
The way the breeze was blowing the smoke trail prompted me to get rid of the overhead wires, so that was me and not Network Rail anticipating any coming budget cuts!

Thanks for looking.

First Class Image of my favourite steam locomotive. Shame about the black livery, they look much better in crimson.

Stirring stuff. I think the wartime black suits these loco's and it compliments the crimson coaches very well.
