Great Central Railway Loughborough Leicestershire 26th January 2019

On the Saturday of the 2019 Winter Gala I was rostered fireman on visiting Great Western Railway Manor 4-6-0 7802 Bradley Manor.

On our first trip we had double-headed with Modified Hall 6990 Witherslack Hall on the 09.00 train to Leicester but this shot was taken prior to our second trip, the 11.15, and we were waiting in the Down Loop in Loughborough as 6990 departed steamily out of the station with the 10.45 train.

Thanks Peter. It may be a preserved line but the GCR can really recreate the past.

Yes, it's always a real buzz to be on the footplate Diana especially during a railway gala in mid-winter.
