Sorry I couldn't resist
44932 at Ashford on 17/12/2010 and 21/12/2010, then pushing Clan Line up from Dover towards Guston Tunnel at the site of Kearsney Loop junction on 22/12/2010.
45212 and 45407 at Carlisle and Penrith 10th November 2018
45407 back in '83.
45379 home and away. Chawton Woods and Avon Valley Railway.
I captured the last time 45231 worked on the ML in the South, as she powers away from the site of the former Junction of the Tongham line between Farnham and Aldershot in March this year, and a pair of Fives at Alton in February (45231 + 45379).

45212 running very late & without its train thanks to the big railway going completely tits up & the light had all but gone!
One from the The Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, 30th March 1969:
45407 at Ramsbottom, ELR. 2 January 2017 and 45025 at Preston with the last steam hauled Belfast Boat Express. 5 May 1968.
Am I right in thinking the one at Leyland is from north of the station?...... from vague memory back in the 80's - no chance of getting there..... & I seem to recall seeing photo's my old man took from roughly the same place as a nipper which was well before the 60's!.......
44932, Colwick Road Level Crossing, Nottingham. 1980's.
45305 Leaving Derby, 21.05.1988.
One from the not so good days
45379, Shakerstone, 2012.
It's south of the station. The bridge in the background is Turpin Green Lane. The '5' is heading south with a railtour and was standing in for 70013 which had failed at Carnforth.
As a Nipper I was only allowed to go from me Nan's in Balshaw Crescent to the station - but explains the bridge in my shots of north bound trains!
Out of interest when was 44932 in green livery?
No pictures but I have very fond memories of riding behind 44932 on a Victoria to Sheffield Park tour 5 years ago (top and tailed with Braunton) and on the Kensington Olympic to Seaford tour. I very recently had a very enjoyable time with 45212 on the Woking to Kingswear tour earlier his year.
3x mainline pics of the Mighty 5's.
44932 departs Salisbury on 5th August 2010
44871 & 45407 head away from Wilton Junction onto the LSWR Mainline to Exeter on 16th December 2013
44871 & 45407 again arriving in Salisbury on 5th December 2013
Way back in the early 70s. She hauled the second of two trains from Carnforth to Barrow and back on the first day of public main line running in September 72. My first main line steam trip post 68.
