Approaching the Summit ***Explored***
In pouring rain and clouds hanging low over Thwaite Bridge Common, 'Royal Scot' class 4-6-0 No.46115 'Scots Guardsman' approaches the Yorkshire/Cumbria border just before Aisgill summit heading the 1Z70 York to Carlisle 'Waverley' charter on Sunday 5th August 2012. The locomotive was regrettably declared a failure at Carlisle and the passengers were treated to West Coast Railway Company class 47 haulage for their return journey to Yorkshire. Yet another occasion this summer where I had to undertake a juggling act with the camera and the brolly.
