Home / Railway Gallery / Standard Gauge Heritage Railways / East Lancashire Railway / ELR 2017 / Western Wheels Weekend - June 2017 [46]

The weekend of 17th/18th of June featured a number of visiting and home fleet locos, all with a common theme - Great Western. The steam locos consisted of 6990 'Witherslack Hall' and 'GWR813', and the diesels were Class 14 'Teddy Bears' D9531 and D9537.

The weather was sweltering with blue skies and sunshine, not exactly the best of things for a Crap Weather Photographer like me, who prefers cooler and wetter conditions, but faced with a choice of risking sunburn or being stuck at home bored stiff, I decided I would just have to put up with the heat and get on with it!:-)

It's always nice to see GWR steam locos in action, I just wish we had a few more of them in these northern parts.
