LNER A4 60009 Union of South Africa took the helm of the last Cumbrian Mountain Express for 2012 from Crewe to Carlisle via Manchester and the Settle and Carlisle line and returned to Crewe via Shap summit later the same afternoon . The A4 is first seen at Hoghton and then exiting Gisburn Tunnel just as a car passed . 60009 is then seen storming past Helwith bridge after the water stop at Hellifield . The return leg sees 60009 fly past Shap summit heading for Carnforth with both shots taken off the walls at the lineside . Thanks to Chris for the update .
