British Railways North Eastern Region Steam Engine
Not the sharpest image in this batch but worth including I think. Peppercorn A1 class pacific no. 60116, subsequently named Hal o' the Wynd in May 1951, in apple green livery with BRITISH RAILWAYS in full on the tender and Ian Rathbone points out that the clue to this livery's LNER origins can be seen here because of the lining around the buffer beam. The location is just south of Croft Spa station and this is a southbound express at the start of the 1 in 391 climb from Croft Spa to Eryholme Junction
