The Lakelander

Another day up in the South Lakes yesterday, on wife delivery and collection duties, was capped not only by spotting a pair of DRS 66s on a long flask train at Grange-Over-Sands, but also a stunningly turned out Black 5 on The Lakelander railtour.

Running from Leicester to Ravenglass, I just managed to grab a pic near Kent's Bank (outside Cedric's house, he of cross-bay walk fame!). I hadn't even been expecting it but the unmistakable sound of a steam engine chattering across the bay had me running to exit the wooded path just in time. It was fairly moving, with barely a puff of smoke visible, on the level stretch between Grange and KB.

Newly refurbished 44932 looked immaculate, complete with Lakelander headboard.
