Dandry Mire viaduct
Railway Herald showing 46100 for Wed 26th, I asked question before, but will this be 46100’s first preservation run over the S&C? Yes, was the previous answer. Unless I’ve missed something how is it the Saphos website has a “photo” of 46100 complete with Fellsman headboard heading south under the bridge at Angerholme?
It's the edited one of Scots Guardsman from previous years
Railway Herald was showing 46100 for last week's run, right until the time it ran wih Britannia behind it. Let's hope that this time there are no last minute switches. Has Britannia recovered from last weeks ailment yet? Heard nothing since Wednesday.
46100 per LSL.
After yesterday’s torrential rain this morning was dry when I left home. As I parked on Chapel lane at Hoghton steady rain began to fall. I was the only person on the overbridge. 46100 could be heard approaching as she whistled for the several crossings lower down the bank. About 5L she arrived, working steadily towards the nearby summit; my wave was acknowledged by the driver. (Always brings a smile - still a kid at heart.) No sanders and the diesel was merely ticking over. Once beyond the summit the exhaust beat quickened with the exhaust hanging in the trees. It’s stopped raining now.

46100 crossing Ribblehead Viaduct with the northbound 'Fellsman' on 26th.August

On the return at Froddle Crook near Low House Crossing...
Royal Scot debut
Very nice Ian,lovely light
Thanks Henry. 2020 has been a very shy year on nice light so far!
Yes Ian don't I know, Ive got plenty shots on S&C in crap weather so I'm lying in wait of fine weather .
46100 at Waitby Common on the return as the sun decided to come out .
46100 (or is it 46152?) makes it's preservation era debut on the S&C with the Fellsman on 26.08.20. It's entirely possible that this will have been it's first ever run across the line as the sheds it was allocated to in those far off steam days wouldn't normally have been associated with the former Midland line. (Cue, someone to produce a photograph to dispel that theory)! Top photo shows the northbound leg at Lazonby whilst the bottom image shows the return working in slightly better light.
You got sun too Steve, well done,the light on the last clip is crackin.
26/08/2020 - 46100 "Royal Scot" coasts past the first of two foot crossing at Barrow heading towards Whalley on the returning Fellsman from Carlisle to Crewe
The sun shines on the righteous
Yes the Righteous bros not the Walker Bros
Agree. The last clip takes an unusual angle and is lovely.
