Footage of 45690 on a slow approach to Kirkby Thore and then accelerating away .
Nice one Stephen, I'll bet you were concerned at first that she was just going to drift past but obviously waiting for the signal, then that increasing tempo as she set about picking up speed...
And here she is a little earlier in this mornings journey on the final climb to Ais Gill Summit:
Sorry for the shakes - I lost my balance - another ruined video to add to the growing collection.
Thanks Ralph , I was a tad worried but the same thing happened on the Fellsman on the 10th of June so I picked this location hoping the same would happen . Not sure why the severe slack but there are a lot of land works going on in that area .
A very enjoyable clip there Steve, such a fabulous sound as the train was accelerated up the line with that wonderful 3-cylinder beat, well captured and many thanks for sharing.
A couple from today of 45690. Howe & Co. northbound and approaching Armathwaite southbound...
With Pen-y-Ghent forming the backdrop, LMS 5XP Class 4-6-0 No. 45690 'Leander' seen working the northbound 'Dalesman' through Selside
With Aisgill Summit tamed, LMS 5XP Class 4-6-0 No. 45690 'Leander' begins the run down to Garsdale with the return leg of the 'Dalesman'
Cracking shots Shep , really like the Aisgill shot as you positioned yourself just right as not to get the big grey NR box in your shot on the left .
Lovely clear skies as Leander returned between Selside and Horton-in-Ribbles

The aesthetics of a Jubilee on that length of train look just right to me, somehow better proportioned than with a longer train. Great coverage too by all posters.
Anyone know whats hauling todays train? Also are the return times as normal? Doesn't seem to be showing on RTT??
There is a glitch in RTT as the return times along with the Hellifield-Carnforth move are not showing up. The normal return times are in the system !
Galatea today. 15 early at Blea Moor, having left Hellifield only 5 early.
And the load is 9 today also.
The return times are now available on RTT:
