HFF Great Central Railway Kinchley Leicestershire 29th January 2023

Against all the odds the sun shone over the GCR's January Gala & after signing off I made for Kinchley lane to capture the two British Railways Standard 5 4-6-0s: visiting 73082 Camelot & 73156, on the 13.45 train to Leicester.

I had been rostered on 73082 in the morning and we did run double-headed with 73156 on the freight from Swithland but tender-first.

I admit it's only a small fence!!
Wishing everyone a HFF and I hope you have a great weekend!

What a wonderful capture Pete. Not often one gets to see a double headed train like this. Standard 5's always look like real engines to me. Well done.

HFF, enjoy the weekend. Herb
