Charter Train at Yarm station
This is a special post for those interested in railways.
Its shows the West Coast Railway Company Class 37 locomotive 37197 on a Green Express Railtours charter train at Yarm station.
It had hauled the 13 coach train from Carlisle after problems with the scheduled class 47 which was left on the back, just in case.
At each station along the route rail enthusiast where surprised to see this very unusual working.
And as a special treat it ran from York to Northallerton, up the East Coast Mainline, using the fast line normally reserved for high speed trains.
Thanks to Nick and the team at Green Express Railtours for a great day out.
