A 4200 Class 2-8-0T Loco built in 1919, it has 8 driving wheels and could haul coal trains weighing in excess of 1,000 tons over the steep gradients of the Welsh valleys. Retired in 1962 until bought for preservation in 1985, but wasn't in steam again until 2014 and can be found on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway (at the moment on loan to the ELR).

At Ramsbottom



15 minutes later at Rawtenstall

Lovely set of photos. If you could get rid of the street light in the right hand side background of number 4 they could all have been taken pre WWII.

Thanks Chris. I did clone out a street lamp on image 2 as it was quite intrusive (literally half way between the boiler front and the mill buildin). I never thought about doing it for the other images.
