70000 Britannia + 60009 UoSA – Cumbrian Steam 02/03/13!
A winter's day filming steam. Firstly, we see 70000 Britannia (stand in for 46115) heading north passed Kirkby Stephen on the S&C line. This is the Vintage Trains 'The Cumbrian Guardsman', Tyseley to Carlisle (1Z45). The second shot, is again Britannia heading north, passing just south of Langwathby and looking in fine form. The third shot is of 60009 Union of South Africa on The Railway Touring Company tour 'The Winter Cumbrian Mountain Express 2', this shot again is just south of Langwathby but this time the tour is heading south. The fourth and final shot is at Oxenholme, as Britannia belts south down the WCML - nice! Well done to the tour companies, keep up the good work. Many thanks to P and L for the great day out and company and to L for the planning - good stuff. It is very sad that one of the group appears to have lost his shots due to a problem with the memory card in the camera. A real nightmare, on what was a great day.
