A4 Locomotive Society: The Inaugural Run of Sir Nigel Gresley 1/4/67
In rather grim weather - leaky shoes created ice around my toes whilst awaiting this train's appearance in the Lune Gorge - Gresley A4 4498 Sir Nigel Gresley is on the climb to Shap and put up a respectable performance as well. Kingmoor shed at Carlisle was 'open house' that day but inclement weather prevented photography for the return via the Settle & Carlisle line.
