The Great Goodbye

2014-02-19 Shildon, a set on Flickr.

This week sees the last opportunity in the foreseeable future to see all six preserved A4 Pacifics together. They are at Shildon until Sunday. I went on Wednesday and took a few photos. I had the privilege of standing on the footplate of 60008 Dwight D Eisenhower which will be returning to the US soon. I must also say thanks to Northern Rail for anticipating demand and putting extra stock on the Saltburn to Bishop Auckland route.
