LNER A4 60009 Union of South Africa Loaded Test Run 18 July 2012

Fresh from overhaul, John Cameron's LNER A4 60009 Union of South Africa, undertook its loaded test run from Carnforth-Settle Jnc-Hellifield-Blackburn-Preston-Carnforth Unfortunately I couldn't get out for the early part of the run, so the action starts on the climb thru Langho and then on to Pleasington. Hopefully the test was successful, and we can welcome No 9 back to the mainline scene. Thank you Mr Cameron and team. Good to see Steve Thompson at Langho (he was there before me) and thanks to Leon and Chris for updates
