Home / Railway Gallery / Standard Gauge Heritage Railways / East Lancashire Railway / ELR 2018 / Tornado and the Flying Scotsman at Bury - 3rd of April 2018 [47]

I decided not to visit the ELR on Good Friday, Easter Saturday or Easter Sunday, as I assumed it would be heaving with visitors, and instead went along on the Monday, in what was a fairly wet and miserable day at the southern end of the line, and a somewhat snowy one at the northern end. I travelled down by train behind the 'Crab', which was also on passenger duties, and travelled back again behind the Crab to Ramsbottom, where I jumped off to get a few shots of 'Tornado' passing through non-stop, though this meant that I didn't have enough time to get back on the train I'd arrived on, and instead I waited there until the diesel service arrived, hauled by 'Class 45 'Peak' number 45108, so a bit of haulage to add to the enjoyment. As on my previous visit, Tornado was working hard pulling 8 fairly full coaches, but the Flying Scotsman was a bit quiet, probably not surprising at the end of a Bank Holiday and in such wet conditions. This gallery contains a collection of images documenting my very enjoyable day out (doubly enjoyable for me with the crap weather!) :-)
