Left lancaster on time.
RT at top of Hoghton bank, 46115 working, good speed, 47 pushing.
I was thinking as the 47 passed the platform end at Lancaster earlier, that must be possibly the most boring job, sitting at the controls of a diesel all day looking at the back of a mk1 carriage and occasionally applying power.
Ah but does he, what's wrong with being in the back cab?????
He was definitely in the front cab (and looking bored!) when it departed Lancaster
A bit like the episode of One Foot in the Grave where Victor is stuck in a bank holiday traffic jam behind a horse box and spends the whole day "staring at a horse's backside."

Under threatening skies, LMS 7P Class 4-6-0 No. 46115 'Scots Guardsman' approaches Horton in Ribblesdale with the northbound 'Fellsman' rail tour
Working along Mallerstang approaching Aisgill summit, LMS 7P Class 4-6-0 No. 46115 'Scots Guardsman' with the returning 'Fellsman' rail tour
2 nice shots from a nice man, this is our song lol
I did see another photographer standing beside the wall a little from my position and now see it was you Shep Wooley. Shame we couldn't keep that lovely light we had at 15.17 & 15.28 the fells looked superb bathed in the light and shadow. My shot taken at Angeholm and what a lovely sound the Scot made climbing to the summit.
Thanks for looking ....Simon
Hardly a cloud in the sky as it rounded the bend towards Wilpshire tunnel in the early evening sun light.... although it was getting a good push up the hill by the class 47

Lovely shot combining 2 recent rarities, 46115 and sunshine. About 7E at the summit, then held in Blackburn for the York - Blackpool N, 2L at Cherry Tree where it was getting a real hefty push from the 47.
Ah Cilla Crack........."worra lorra laffs"

Nice shot Phil and good to see you giving the location its proper name
Now then Henry, non of your posh location names here please, to us locals it is Low Baron Wood.
Yeah your right but Coombe Eden does roll off the tongue lol
I see the Fellsman is not stopping at Appleby this week due to the Horse Fair... Stopping at Langwathby instead.
