Castle over Shap
Another super pic from John Smith featuring the Tyseley - Carlisle 'Castle over Shap' special from June 20th, 2009. Castle class 4-6-0 no.5043 Earl of Mount Edgcumbe powers through Winwick heading a rake of chocolate and cream carriages. Notice the camber on that inside down line. I think I am right in saying that this was the first time that a 'Castle' class loco had conquered the famous Shap incline. Thanks John - keep sending them in.
