Cleethorpes Lincolnshire 9th March 2012

British Railways Standard 7 Pacific 70013 Oliver Cromwell had a bit of bother with piston rings which was quickly fixed by the 5305LA engineers but it meant staying on Cleethorpes Platform 1 all week, prior to pulling the Tynesider railtour on the 10th March.

 

I turned up on the 9th but these blokes had been there for a day or so already which meant the engine had been pretty well prepared already. To commemorate the occasion a group shot in front of the sparkling loco was called for.

 

A Great Central engine at a Great Central station with Great Central footplatemen, one and all.
