Looking forward to possible all LNER @ Fort William

Post by Tom Quayle » Tue Dec 06, 2005 4:46 pm

There has been some speculation about the 2006 jacobite season but one thing I herd a few weeks ago was that there could be a possiblity of an all 2-6-0 affer if not this year in 2007 with the pairing of K1 62005 Lord of the Isle (Currently under repair to fire box crack at Carnforth) and K4 the Great Marquse (Currently under restoration) What an opertunity this would be. The other Interesting point is that now we have another LNER area Jacbite serie with the Whitby flyer which 62005 has worked in the past (This will proberbly one of the first mainline runs for 60007 after the garanteed season on the NYMR) Just imagine what the final one of the Whitby Flyers could be 62005 and 60007 a fantisey many would like I feel. On the subject of the Whitby runs at least 3 locos have been lined up for mainline regustration by the NYMR (75029, Black 5 Eric Tracy and S15 no825) I ll try and get more info if anyone else has any more it would be highly valued as I realy enjoy going to see mainline railtours but rarely get to see LNER engines being based in Cumbria and being stuck with the same Black 5, Standard 4 and Duchess

Well the K4s were built for the West Highland Line!

For Whitby runs, the NELPG and NRM are both based in the same general area, so there are a number of possible guest locos - the V2, Q6, A2, etc.
(okay the A2 isn't being overhauled yet so I'm guessing 2+ yrs from running??)


"Rarely get to see LNER engines as I'm based in Cumbria": Have you seen where I am? lol!

It's a long trip across the pond for me too! But I will get there again soon. My daughter wants visit the NMR and see "Mallard" and take a ride behind "Flying Scotsman" - she loves looking at the book fo teh Scotsman in Australia, especially as I can point out places we have been (she is only 6 but was born in Melbourne).

Please stop making me jealous! But for goodness sake please keep up the flow of news!
