60009 – The Mersey Moorlander – 23.7.12

After Sundays gentle little stroll along the North Wales Coast, today saw newly restored A4 no.60009 'Union of South Africa' doing battle with the sterner tests of the Settle & Carlisle and Shap, working the first of Compass Railtours 'Mersey Moorlander' specials from Liverpool. No. 9 took over the train at Preston and in this video is seen at Ramsgreave and Wilpshire, Hellifield and Helwith Bridge on the outward journey to Carlisle
