A4 60009 on The Cumbrian Mountain Express on Sat 1st Sept 2012.
LNER A4 60009 Union of South Africa was given the honours of hauling the last Cumbrian Mountain Express of the Summer of 2012. The tour run by The Railway Touring Company was running from Crewe to Carlisle via Manchester, Clitheroe and The Settle and Casrlisle Railway and returning via Shap and the wcml. We first see 60009 on the outward leg with Twelve on the hook climbing Rimington Bank then we see The A4 at Helwith Bridge getting into her stride for the long drag. Thanks to all involved with the tours this Summer and it was also nice to see Idris and Steve at Helwith Bridge. Hope you enjoy.
