Sorry but it's horrible, give me steam any day.


Comment by peterp on 22nd August 2011 at 08:25
a box on rails a lot cleaner than steam trains but ugly


Comment by Fred Mason on 22nd August 2011 at 10:10
Yup, tend to agree. A characterless engine. Nothing like the old Patriot class and Princess class, Jubilee class...et al...

Better than pictures of birds all the time. Supoose to be Wigan World, not Wildlife World!!!!!


Comment by John Williams on 22nd August 2011 at 17:07
I always thought these looked better in the Blue and Yellow colours, we did change to steam at Carnforth and continued our trip with a Stanier class 8F

What day was this photo taken?


Comment by John Williams on 23rd August 2011 at 21:55
Hi Dot
This was taken on the 6th August which was a Saturday

Hey chaps, sorry to pee on yer bonfires but some of us are just whippersnappers (relatively speaking), and we don't remember steam engines in regular use.

So, even though I'm not a particular fan of class 47s, I'm more than pleased to see this loco passing through Wigan NW.

At least it was BUILT in this country. Which is more than can be said for most of the railborne tat these days....
