May I remind you that next Friday, 19th March, 'The Cumbrian Mountain Express' is passing through Winwick (scheduled at Bank Quay at 09.50hrs) running north from Crewe to Carlise headed by BR 'Standard' class 7, 70013, Oliver Cromwell. Keep up to date using the 'UK Steam Info' link to the right of the blog.
Three more pics from Chris Wilcock comprise the main part of this post, and they are super shots all taken at Astley Moss. The first shows Deltic 22, 55022, Royal Scots Grey working the 'Hope Valley Executive' railtour on 9th August, 2008.
Chris's second shot features Stanier class 5, 45407, The Lancahire Fusilier heading the 'York Yule-Tide Express' charter in December, 2008. Both 45407 and 55022 were photographed close to the level crossing as they headed towards Manchester.
