LNER A4 60009 The Hadrian 27/10/12.

LNER A4 60009 Union of South Africa took the helm of the Railway Touring Companies railtour The Hadrian from York to Carlisle via Newcastle and the Hexham line and returned later the same afternoon to York via the S&C . The first shots sees 60009 near Gilsland on the Tyne Valley line with 57601 on the rear . The next shot sees the A4 at Cotehill in failing light . I did have a shot a Kirkby Stephen but the camera went out of focus with the light having gone so I should have gone to the station as I had planned .
