The Cumbrian Guardsman, The Winter Cumbrian Mountain Express & The Statesman 02-03-2013 [09:49]
It's always good to be able to take advantage of multiple tours running on a certain day, complete with a nice walk in the dales inbetween shots. And that's exactly what we did on a sunny and relatively warm March Saturday. After setting off early from home, since we had time we decided to begin at Gisburn with a shot of 47773 heading Vintage Trains' 'Cumbrian Guardsman' from Tyseley to Hellifield before 70000 'Britannia' took over for the run north over the S&C to Carlisle then back down the WCML over Shap to Carnforth (originally this was booked to be hauled by 46115 'Scots Guardsman', hence the tour name).

The Brit ended up approaching alot slower than expected on the 1 in 100 gradient but made up for this when it reached the 1/4 mile level section, suddenly piling on the power and accelerating hard towards Ribblehead. Because the wind was in the correct direction and 70000 was making so much noise, we were able to hear the train for about 5 miles after it passed us... We now had 4 hours to get up to Keld Farm, just north of Appleby, so we took the scenic route and had a walk at Denthead and next to the northern portal of Blea Moor Tunnel, where there were some rather nice waterfalls cascading down from the nearby moor, which are included here. After stopping at Dent ...

The Winter Cumbrian Mountain Express 2nd March 2013 [02:56]
This popular rail tour heads into a very packed Carlisle Station with A4 LNER 60009 Union of South Africa. We see it arrive and then run round its coaches whilst 87002 hooks up to provide train heating.

A4 60009 on The Winter Cumbrian Mountain Express on Sat 2nd March 2013. [03:06]
Here is my footage of the penultimate Winter Cumbrian Mountain Express of 2013. The honours were once again given to LNER A4 60009 'Union of South Africa', we see the A4 crossing the 48 arch Whalley Viaduct on the return leg of the charter. The charter run by The Railway Touring Company ran from London to Carlisle via the wcml and Shap Summit and returned over The Settle and Carlisle Railway and then via Clitheroe and Blackburn. I hope you enjoy.
