Triple headed Steam Engines is quite rare thing to happen anywhere in Britain… but when it happens on the Mainline and in your Local area its an opportunity not to be missed!
Here we have West Coast Railway Company’s 3 out of 4 operational LMS Locomotives heading to and from the Mid Norfolk Railway’s ‘West Coast Railways Steam Gala’, a rare chance to see these engines working on a preserved railway as they’re usually reserved for Mainline Charters.
LMS 8f Class 48151, Jubilee Class 45699 'Galatea’ and Royal Scot Class 46115 'Scots Guardsman’ are seen here calling at Woodlesford on their way to the MNR on the 29th May 2014 (First picture) and passing through Leeds on their way home to their base at Carnforth on 2nd June 2014.
48151 at Keighley with the Yorkshire Coast Express yesterday. The engine lit several line side fires on it return from Scarborough and the 8f was replaced with West Coast Railways’ 37516. Unfortunately, due to a power failure at Leeds I could not see the return working :(
