The Cumbrian Mountain Express – 60009, Union of South Africa – 4th August 2012
LNER A4 Class, 60009 Union of South Africa hauled the Cumbrian Mountain Express on Saturday 4th August 2012. We first see the A4 as she powers through Settle on the outward leg, some 72 miles from Carlisle. The next clips are taken as 60009 streaks through Lancaster station on the return journey. Many thanks to the footplate crew for the doppler whistle at the end. The tour route was Crewe - Farrington Jnct - Settle - Carlisle - Shap- Manchester Victoria - Crewe.
