Carlisle to Blackburn - 15th October 1967.

70013 on Carlisle Kingmoor shed before returning to Crewe on an SLS special via Ais Gill on 15th October 1967.Despite the fact that steam was dissapearing fast, look at the number of locomotives on Kingmoor shed -116 - all listed below in Eric Parker's diary.

Despite what the ticket says the tour ran on 15th October 1967, postponed from 24th September because of a guards strike.The 2 recordings are:

A) 70013 climbing to Ais Gill southbound.

B) 70013 between Hellifield and Blackburn. If you like locomotives being worked fairly hard for extended periods with lots of (chime) whistling this is the recording for you. Best played loud when there is nobody else in the house!!
