Chuffing Down the Coast

by pgweber

46115 'Scots Guardsman' passes lonely Nethertown on the Cumbrian Coast with a day trip returning from Carlisle to London.

Sadly St Bees Head is obscured by the steam, but lets be honest I didn't go there (only) for the scenery!

Nice compo and to get the steam exiting on the rhs in that way - looks good!

Nice one Peter. Looks like one of the typical grey days we've been getting recently but fortunately there wasn't too much mist.

Thanks to Andy & David for looking in and commenting.

If it had been sunny, a better spot would have been the headland just a little to the south accessed by a small road bridge, to view the "sea" side of the train.

Your recent efforts on the Shap Fells David, set me looking at upcoming steam trips and I saw this one.

I used one of the Northern Trains Day Ranger tickets on the penultimate day of the offer, to get there for 10 from Sheffield (Meadowhall departing 0634), changing at Leeds, Carnforth and a walk around in Whitehaven. Greenholme would have been good but I couldn't get there in time as the Settle-Carlisle was partially closed.
