Home / Railway Gallery / Railtour Gallery / Railtours in 2019 / The South Yorkshireman - 3rd of November 2019 3

Sunday 3rd of November saw the 'South Yorkshireman' railtour passing through the area, and I thought I'd try and get a few shots of it as it passed through the Castleton area of Rochdale. Things didn't go quite according to plan though, and with a blanket of fog over the area the location I'd planned to use just wouldn't have worked, so I had to be content with the station platform, which wasn't ideal with a steam double-header, but I didn't have too much choice in the matter. The two locos pulling the service were a couple of Mr Riley's Black 5s, '44871' and '45407', both regular visitors to the ELR, though never seen running at 60mph on their metals. The railtour was travelling from Blackburn to Wakefield.
