Nice pics Ron. That's when they made loco's that worked in any weather, ran on time and looked good into the bargain. And they said steam loco's were inefficient.  :angry:

Fantastic. Love to see the steamers. I know the line rather well. (I'm a driver for EMT based in Nottingham)


 


But 60009 ?  I'm more familiar with its 'sister' engine  :lol:

Nice one, I understand that line near Sleaford is going to be very busy with a new freight sevice from somewhere up North to March in Cambs?

Is that 60 photo Sleaford Ron ?


I wasn't sure where it was......but Sleaford is somewhere i'm not personally familiar with. 


Lincoln-Sleaford-Spalding-Peterborough (The 'Joint-Line') isn't one of my routes.

"more frieght"  - Yes just to shut the main high st crossing more often at Lincoln - but that's ok the last time I heard they were building a foot bridge. Not even my 4X4 will get up and down that. :angryface:


 


One of Gresley's best especially as it ran in the 30's - didn't realise he designed the Electric line from Sheffield to Manchester via the Woodhead pass - even though some idiot called Beecham closed it after it was completed in the 1950's.
