As you know, the NRM’s Class 7 Pacific No. 70013 Oliver Cromwell visited Scotland (and most of the rest of Britain!) recently. These photos were sent in to us by Dave Wilson via one of our support crew members who has contacts in the SRPS. I think that you will agree that they are stunning photos of a stunning machine in wonderful scenery doing what she does best. Many thanks to Dave Wilson for sending them to us for use on the website.
70013 arrived in Southall yesterday, fresh from tyre turning at Crewe and was waiting patiently on the pit when 30777 Sir Lamiel (another NRM engine in our care) came back from her visit to Canterbury and a scenic tour of the beautiful Kent countryside, back on her home ground for the first time in many years. I don’t usually link to photos or video clips which haven’t been specifically sent in to us, but this one caught our eye here at 5305LA Webquarters, nice tidy camera work, of a great machine working well in ‘proper’ countryside http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyS6sV-hFi0 many thanks to 21C123 for posting it on the web where people can enjoy watching one of the NRM's finest engines in action on her home ground.
