Sir Nigel Gresley

Sir Nigel Gresley
To me this is the ultimate steam locomotive - an A4 Pacific (4-6-2). This example (60007) is named after its designer, Sir Nigel Gresley. It is shown here at Grosmont getting into position to pull a service to Pickering. This was a part of the April 2015 North Yorkshire Moors Railway steam gala, a most enjoyable day with several steam locomotive movements in every hour.

Many thanks - that nose enabled one of this class (Mallard) to reach a record 126 mph for a steam locomotive.

Sounds like a great fest of old steam locomotives. She does look very impressive and powerful. There is a magic about them.

Aparte del bonito perfil de la locomotora, se reproduce muy bien el ambiente ferroviario que nos llevaria mas de cincuenta años atrás. Me encantan los ferrocarriles, en especial los antiguos. Mi mas sincera felicitación. Eduardo.
