Scene at Riccarton Junction on 5 June 1965 with A4 Pacific no 60027 Merlin at the head of a Scottish Locomotive Preservation Fund special. The train had originated in Edinburgh and travelled via the ECML and the N&C to Carlisle behind A3 no 60052 Prince Palatine [see image 21304]. The A3 had unfortunately failed at Carlisle and 60027 had been hurriedly commandeered to take over for the journey back to Edinburgh via the Waverley route.
