Here is a shot of a private steam charter that came through my hometown, Winsford, this morning. It started at Crewe and is going on the Settle to Carlisle railway terminating at Carlisle and then reverting back the same route back to Crewe. The reason why I took the shot is that one of my friends is on the tour. I had to contend with brilliant sunshine, photo taken about, coming from the left which lit up the side of the train but not its front. Nevertheless my friend will have another momento of his trip. David

A nice head-on view of this splendid steam train, David. It must have been wonderful to view it this close, and noisy!

Thanks John. Sadly the line is electrified here. But saying that when I was in short trousers as we travelled from liverpool to Crewe to Shrewsbury and then Aberystwyth
But those on the train would have miles upon miles today of non electrified main lines. David
