Galashiels [1st]

Photo-scramble at Galashiels on 5 June 1965 as 60027 Merlin poses with SLPF special 1X18 on its way back to Edinburgh from Carlisle. The outward journey had been via the ECML to Newcastle, thence the N&C to Carlisle. The reason 60027 is looking in less than pristine railtour condition is that the scheduled locomotive, A3 no 60052, Prince Palatine, failed at Carlisle and 60027 had been pressed into service as an emergency stand-in.
