    Tell you what it is I’m sick of sarcastic comments mainly from you about this and that so don’t expect me to post anything anytime soon. You like to pick fault all the time so enjoy yourself if that makes you tick . End of the day I don’t get more YouTube views from NP either way :)

    That rake was the one used for the weekends CME so as its following job was the Dalesman, logistically there was little point in running it back to Carnforth Sunday or Monday, then have a 3am start to shunt and run back down to Chester.

    Don't say that Steve; I'm in Reading ( yes, down south ) and rely on the top photos which you always produce to keep me in the loop as they say. Quite a challenge this morning following events which were quite superbly sorted by all involved and great to see the Merchant racing down the WCML under the wires. Many thanks for recording her which gives me enjoyment and I need this together with watching McCartney concerts...all about reliving the past eh !! All the best, and looking forward to your usual chases around the north, Pete

    35018-Greenholme-The Dalesmman-11 August 2020-Peter AinsworthV4.jpg Fifty-two years to the day since the end of regular Mainline steam in the UK, it seems unlikely that few, if any, (myself included) could have predicted that a Southern Bulleid Pacific locomotive, hauling an all maroon rake of stock, would be seen running down Shap.
    However, that's exactly what happened on 11 August 2020 as 'British India Line' hauled the 'Dalesman' from Carlisle to Carnforth.

    Great shot and I think that you can safely say that no one could have predicted that.

    Thanks for that Ralph, I was perhaps being a little over cautious and have amended my description slightly

    It is 19:18 and we are still at a stop while the fireman receives treatment in an ambulance.

    46115 at Blea Moor Tunnel in awful conditions and finally Waitby Rock Cutting . After talking with the Mods I decided to post my video footage again as I only do this for a hobby so if I film somewhere that is what it is . Sad news the fireman was taken poorly as video's and pictures mean nothing when someones health is at risk .

    Fabulous footage as always, Steve'. Reminds me of many Yorkshire summer holidays in the rain...and actually, that looks pretty heavy stuff. Now lets hope all is well with the fireman. All the best to him. Pete

    Thanks Pete , difficult at Blea Moor but I suppose that pales into insignificance with a poorly fireman .
