A4 60009 on The Winter Cumbrian Mountain Express on Sat 2nd Feb 2013.
Here is my footage of the second Winter Cumbrian Mountain Express of 2013. The tour run by The Railway Touring Company was hauled by Sir Nigel Gresley built A4 Pacific 60009 'Union of South Africa' we see the A4 at Greenholme and Shap summit on the outward leg and then at Aisgill on the return leg. The tour was running from London Euston to Carlisle and had been hauled by heritage electric loco 86259 'Les Ross' to Carnforth where A4 60009 took over for the climb over shap and then the return over The Settle and Carlisle Railway to Farington where 'Les Ross' took the helm for the run down to London. It was interesting to note today it was the first A4 to run North over Shap since 2007. I hope you enjoy.
