Scout Green

70013 Oliver Cromwell approaching the site of Scout Green level crossing with the Cumbrian Mountain Express. Moments later, and while still in view, the 4-6-2 slipped at speed (twice) but was expertly brought under control and continued to Shap summit in fine style. (See recent YouTube postings at Scout Green capturing this impressive piece of driving).
