Originating in Kilmarnock the Fylde Coast Express was steam hauled over the S&C and on to Blackpool on 22 May 2013 by Black 5 44932. It is seen here on the approach to Poulton-le-Fylde, just a few minutes away from its destination. Relatively few steam excursions use the Blackpool line and the return leg of this charter retraced the route but was diesel hauled throughout.
