HELWITH BRIDGE 19TH DECEMBER 2000

On completion of extensive track renewal on the S & C, Railtrack hired 48151 for the last ballast working of the programme. The 8F is seen here with the empty vacuum-braked Catfish hoppers en route to Ribblehead quarry to collect the final load of new ballast. To date, this has been the only "real" steam hauled main line freight working in preservation.
