47 617 waits to leave for Glasgow at Carlisle. In the background a bit of post-diversion analysis is going on.
Ewan Crawford [26/11/1988]


A1 Pacific 60118 Archibald Sturrock arrives at Carlisle with a train from the north in the 1960s passing a Black 5 standing on the centre road. The locomotive was doubtless working back to its home shed at Leeds via the Settle & Carlisle line. [60118 was transferred from Copley Hill to Neville Hill in 1963 during run-down of the former shed prior to its official closure the following year.]

The BR ^Fifteen Guinea Special^ was billed as the final standard gauge main line passenger train to be hauled by a steam locomotive on British Rail. It ran on Sunday 11 August 1968, the day before the introduction of the main line steam ban. The photograph shows 70013 Oliver Cromwell (the last steam locomotive to be overhauled by BR) following its arrival at Carlisle with the special.
