Steam Train visit in Lincoln today

Postby Old Rigger » Sat Jul 14, 2012 5:59 pm

Apparently we had a steam train visit in Lincoln today, the wife told me about it when she came back:

Britannia class Pacific 4-6-2 steam locomotive No. 70013 “Oliver Cromwell”.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Image

Yes, that was 'The Lincoln Imp': Kings Cross-Potters Bar-Stevenage-Peterborough and return. (I meant to 'flag' this one up earlier, but have had my attention diverted to other matters just recently).
