First Steam

This was the sight at Lockerbie Station this morning as the (busy) First Transpennine DMU pulls away bound for Manchester Airport. Emerging from the up loop is LMS Class 7P 4-6-0 no 46115 Scots Guardsman.

Here is the locomotive, with its support carriage, pulling away headed for Edinburgh Joppa, having begun its journey at Carnforth earlier.

Don't you think it looks splendid! The locomotive is set to pull the Day 2 leg of the Railway Touring Company's Great Britain IV from Edinburgh to Inverness via Aberdeen tomorrow, see here.
