The unique rebuilt BR/LMSR Royal Scot class 4-6-0 no. 46106 Gordon Highlander characteristically sprays copious amounts of water as she slakes her thirst on Dillicar water troughs just south of Tebay. This shot isn't dated but Vic SWmith has, by comparing firnly dated images on the web, narrowed the period when this shot was taken to August/September 1960 when 46106 was allocated to Newton Heath although my notes suggest that a short time in the September was spent at Crewe North mpd.
