Mainline Steam In The Fells & Across The Border

3 Просмотры
Hello & Welcome to Harnetty Railways

In this video we see 3 steam workings within an 8 day period from the 8th of September 2020 to the 15th of September 2020 over the northern fells & across the border into Scotland.

We start on September 8th as we see David Smith's 35018 British India Line working the Dalesman steam hauled from Hellifield after taking over from diesel hauling which brought the train from Chester that morning. Here we see the bulleid at Langwathby not long after restarting from Appleby heading for Carlisle.

For the return run it was via Shap on the WCML as we see 35018 passing through Penrith North Lakes the lineside was planned but was scrapped as a few minutes after BIL had gone through a container train past coming the other way heading towards Carlisle.

We move onto September 12th as we see The A1 Steam Trust's A1 pacific 60163 Tornado fresh from being repainted at Carnforth 10A into BR Express Passenger lined green livery with the late crest on the tender returning to that condition for the 1st time since 2012.

The A1's support coach also got a make over being repainted from blood & custard to West Coast Railway's maroon livery.

2020 is a special year for the A1 as 2020 marked the 30th anniversary of the formation of The A1 Steam Locomotive Trust in 1990 who had a vision to build the 50th member of Arther Peppercorn's A1 Pacific.

We start day 2 at Carlisle as we see the A1 passing through the station to couple onto Tornado Railtour's The Queen of Scots to take over from diesel haulage which brought the train from York via the tyne valley earlier in the day.

We head to Lockerbie as we see the A1 getting into his stride ready for the climb of Beattock with 13 coaches in tow.

We finish this video with Day 3 back on The Settle & Carlisle but this time with West Coast Railway's flagship loco in David Smith's 46115 Scots Guardsman.

We start at Hellifield as we see the Scot arriving with support coach from Carnforth 10A in readiness to take over from diesel haulage which was bringing The Dalesman the last regular trip of the 2020 season from York.

We have a gd close up look round the immaculate machine in 46115 as the Scot takes on water.

We head to Ribblehead between Ribblehead viaduct & Blea Moor Signal Box as wee the Scot getting into his stride hauling 13 coaches with ease.

Like The NRM's 46229 Duchess of Hamilton during the 1980's & the 1990's winning the hearts of enthusiasts the same can defiantly be said for 46115 as the Scot as proved in this video tackling heavy loads in fine fettle performances over The S&C that the Scot has made the line his home over the last 12 years since returning to steam under West Coast Railways in 2008.

At Ribblehead we didn't expect much in exhaust terms due to the warm sunny weather but 46115 Scots Guardsman & his crew had other ideas.

We end this vid at Carlisle as we see 46115 shunting the 13 coach train back into the platform to collect his passenger ready for the south bound run back to Hellifield & we finish with 46115 doing an impressive departure.

What a fabulous few days. During these trips also marked my return to using public transport proper for mainline steam since the UK went into lockdown back in March 2020.

It feels gd to be back after 6 months staying away from public transport during the pandemic.

Thank very much for watching enjoy the video.
