Super power at GCR(N)

THIS working with four items of motive power proved a spectacular sight during the Great Central (Nottingham) Railway’s July 1-2 diesel gala.

The 16.06 Loughborough High Level-Ruddington (1D16) – the return working of 1A13, the 15.15 departure from Ruddington – was captured crossing Stanford-on-Soar Viaduct on Sunday afternoon.

Leading is privately owned Class 47 No. 47292, paired with D05 Preservation’s No. 47828, newly repainted in InterCity livery, with HST Prototype power car No. 41001 behind, and
Class 56 No. 56097 on the rear.

The two Brush Type 4s (pictured using a pole) were working in multiple, believed to have been a ‘first’ in preservation. Picture: JASON CROSS
