A Santa Special afternoon turn on be-tinselled Modified Hall 4-6-0 6990 Witherslack Hall. It was virtually dark when we arrived at Leicester North station but the combination of the glow from the firebox and the station Christmas lights adds some colour to the scene. Taken after uncoupling the loco.

HFF - Great Central Railway Loughborough Leicestershire 3rd November 2019

Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to work we go. We were on our way to relieve Neil & Jon on Stanier 8F 2-8-0 48305 when we saw the train arriving in platform 1. Considering it had left for Leicester over 10 minutes late this took us a bit by surprise. The impressive line up of steam engines in shed road 3 is matched by the impressive line up of diesel engines in the Up Through which includes Class 25 D5185 and Class 37 37714 seen here. HFF everyone and have a great weekend.
