Tornado Watch 2

The sign says, "Passing trains cause air turbulence!" Yes indeed. There was even a Tornado at Oxenholme yesterday.

Always interesting to watch the comings and goings on the West Coast Main Line.

Here it comes.

Going at speed, as it prepares for the run up Shap.

Tornado is so impressive when one gets the chance to see it passing so close and working hard.

Camera shake with excitement!

The locomotive was pulling The Border Raider railtour yesterday between Crewe and Carlisle, and return via Settle. Here 60163 rests at Carlisle.

What an impressive locomotive. Read all about it here.

A couple of hours later, Carlisle's economy having benefitted in the interim, the train is ready to depart south.
