Sunshine and Wind
Yesterday, February 22nd, 'King Arthur 'class 4-6-0, 30777, Sir Lamiel and BR 'Britannia' class 4-6-2, 70013, Oliver Cromwell with support coach, travelled south through Winwick at 10.14hrs. Both locomotives had taken part in the East Lancs Railway Steam Gala over the previous weekend and were on passage to Tyseley. Many photographers gathered at Winwick in superb sunshine but were thwarted by a powerful crosswind and exhaust of volcanic proportions. The huge exhaust canopy meant that the locos were in shadow for most of the time they were in view. To make things worse Sir Lamiel was also smothered in wind-blown exhaust for most of the time. Did anyone get decent shots either at Winwick or elswhere, nearby? If so send them in to the email address above, The driver/fireman of Oliver Cromwell was noted taking photographs of the Winwick enthusiasts as he powered past.
