Oh, I love to see a steam locomotive, never tire of sitting with mug of tea & a Kitkat at Weybourne Station watching whats going on....

In British Railways days this loco was a rarity to the West Coast Main Line.It was based at Nottingham.

Good photo of arguably the most powerful 4-6-0s ever built.

A great sight to see!
This locomotive was deployed on the Kings Cross to Edinburgh route in its infancy. Many times I travelled on my own in the mid-50's by train to Euston to stay with relatives in London!


Comment by Johnny on 26th April 2016 at 09:31
I confused my earlier post with the Flying Scotsman...maybe this loco only travelled on the East Coast route. Never seen it in the North-West on scheduled journeys!


Comment by Mick on 26th April 2016 at 11:19
My first ever trip to London was on the Royal Scot this was in the early 60s, so it did travel on the west coast line.

Wonderful! Bring back steam!


Comment by Vb on 26th April 2016 at 13:46
These trains were certainly classy -unlike what we have now-there is no comparison.


Comment by Jed on 26th April 2016 at 13:50
Fantastic!

A class lady

I remember seeing 6100 from Black Bridge. My father explained to my mother the difference between the Royal Scot engine, 6100, and the Royal Scot train, 10am from Euston daily, and forget the Flying Scot. This would put it before 1950. I'm happy to see 46100 back on the mainline.

To see the station that Helen of Troy mentions, see:-
http://webcams.nnrailway.co.uk/
This is the Poppy Line/North Norfolk Railway. There`s a webcam at the following stations:-
Sheringham 1 and 2, Weybourne and Holt 1 and 2.


Comment by Helen of Troy on 27th April 2016 at 19:04
Might see you there one of these days Ernest !
