    Putting on a fine display, LMS 5XP Class 4-6-0 No. 45690 'Leander' climbs away from Oxenholme with today's 'Cumbrian Coast Express' , Dave Blair driving
    and Chris Holmes firing with Roly Parker keeping an eye on proceedings

    No complaints with the weather today as 'Leander' speeds through Nethertown with the return leg of the 'Cumbrian Coast Express', Steve Chipperfield driving
    and Rob Russell firing

    With the Coniston Fells in the distance (Coniston Old Man, Dow Crag, Brown Pike and White Pike) 'Leander' accelerates away from Foxfield back to Carnforth
