Playing Big Trains

I found myself on YouTube!

In 1999 Black 5 45110 stormed out of Liverpool Lime Street and up the bank past Edge Hill Station where I, and many others, were stood waiting. The sound was stunning - we could hear the loco working very very hard all the way up before she burst out under this bridge and took the applause!

See the film here.

This event will be re-run in August to celebrate the 40th anniversary of 1T57 - the last steam passenger train out of Lime Street before the end of steam on BR. Be worth a visit.....

By the way, I am the figure who runs out of shot to the right at the very end.....
