Time to say goodbye to the brilliant beauty Goodbye sweet princess!
Lovely shot Chris!
Cracking shot mate !
yay it's me again
very nice. they do not do that here anymore in Queensland, it is often hauled by a diesel to get to its desination
Certain locomotives that are out of ticket (non-operational), banned from operating over certain stretches of line or not yet mainline certified are also hauled by diesels in the UK, but quite often when the loco is mainline certified and operational it will work a light loco movement on the mainline under it's own power.
Thank you very much!
lizzie always was a speed demon, and she isn't showing signs of her age at all.
She did run a few hot boxes recently, but other than that there were no major major failures to report. She is a very tired engine however, her crew were nursing her through until new years eve, when her boiler ticket officially expires.
