West Highlander Grayrigg Cumbria 25th September 2009

LMS Jubilee class 4-6-0 45690 Leander approaches milepost 24 1/2 on the 1 in 106 climb northwards up Grayrigg bank in the Cumbrian hills en route to Glasgow Central.

 

The train had been looped at Oxenholme by the bottom of the bank to take water and was looped again at Grayrigg to let first the West Coast Railways own Class 47 47760 past and then a Virgin Pendolino heading for Glasgow.
