Cromwell at Claypole

Photo Information
From February 2009, Ex BR 'Britannia' No. 70013 named 'Oliver Cromwell' was pictured storming South past Claypole in Lincolnshire.

She(?) was en route from Cleethorpes to London Kings Cross with a train load of day trippers. This type used to haul fast "Fish Trains" from that East coast port in the days of steam.

I was supposed to be going out this way to photograph a steamer this morning, but missed the train to Newark so went home and enjoyed tea and toast & marmalade.

Mmmmm toast and marmalade, got that every morning for breakfast while I was in hospital

Nice capture of Cromwell Peter, I remember seeing her at Wigan shortly after overhaul in early 68.
