LMS Black 5 45407 "The Lancashire Fusilier"


Stanier Black 5 45407 at Carlisle August 10th 2008 waiting to couple up to 1T57 "15 Guinea Special" to haul the tour back south to Manchester via the Settle & Carlisle line. The loco is to pilot 45231 on the trip south, the northbound leg being hauled by 70013 "Oliver Cromwell". Ian Riley, the owner of 45407, has put several guises on the engine during its mainline ticket of the early 2000's as itself, "The Glasgow Highlander" and "The Lancashire Fusilier". There was a report that 45407 was going to run as 44871 for this tour as 44871 and 44781 were the actual engines on the original 1T57 in 1968. Photo D Clarke.
