Tank Engine Weekend

By spikemoz
Over the Easter weekend, the Great Central Railway at Loughborough were operating their services with well known tank engines. They also had two more on display that were nearly complete after restoration.

The K&WVR lent their Micky Mouse tank and she is seen in V2 alongside the Great Eastern Railway N7 tank which was at Barrow Hill last weekend. The rest are of the N7 departing on an up train for Leicester North.

Great series. I would have expected to see more people there than that.

V6 then V1 in that order for me Spike. Like Barry I'm surprised so few people. Another magnificent set of shots.

Thanks for the votes and comments, much appreciated. Re: numbers of people, I thought there wasn't that many and certainly nothing like the vast numbers that attended at Barrow Hill, we had to queue for about 20 mins just to get tickets! But having said that, yesterday the weather was miserable, dull and drizzle. Also the dining train was in the next platform which was full and the train with the N7 was ready for departure so there would be passengers on board. The event is also being held over four days.

Another really great series of shots, thanks for your comments, we have been up on the North Yorkshire Moors for the Easter Break, with the caravan.

Cracking V1 Paul, but as I am mobile broadband the others version take an age to open so will look at them when I get home
