LMS 46100 Royal Scot through Wigan North Western with a private charter bound for York on 14th June 2016.

A cracking shot Dave. I missed this one, I have only been skimming the Steam Railtours web page recently and I assume that when it listed this as Crewe to York I presumed that it wasn't passing Wigan.

Caught it beautifully Dave. Looks in good nick. Kicking yourself John?


Comment by Neil on 18th June 2016 at 14:12
A better shot would have been from the other side, that way you would have captured all the coaches too.
But never the less a nice shot.


Comment by Jonno on 18th June 2016 at 17:10
Nice one Dave, clear as crystal as usual.
DAVE, could i refer you to a St Georges Primary School photo uploaded today in Album, i'd like your opinion please.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 18th June 2016 at 18:11
Neil - there was a modern electric thing bound for Liverpool on the other side.

Lovely atmospheric picture.


Comment by irene roberts on 18th June 2016 at 18:50
Oh, that's lovely, and so atmospheric!


Comment by Vb on 19th June 2016 at 09:02
I wonder what the old Footplatemen would make of these 'scrubbed - up' engines! I should imagine if they see them in spirit they would be dancing with glee! (I wouldn't be surprised if they are aboard)


Comment by irene roberts on 19th June 2016 at 09:40
I like that thought, Vb. x.


Comment by Vb on 19th June 2016 at 09:49
Thankyou Irene. Since reading "A Footplateman Remembers" I see the trains with a different eye and quite an emotional one at that especially because of Len!


Comment by Johnny on 19th June 2016 at 10:24
Great to see the old engines still preserved, scrubbed up as Vb says and in service!
As kids always exciting a train journey!

What a cracking shot, that is all I can say
Thanks Day
