Headed to Carstairs this morning to see LMS Black 5, 45305 in British Railways Black livery. This was the first time I’d seen this loco and it is stunning. It sat in Carstairs for around 35 minutes, where it was refilled with water then moved forward to the down goods loop signal to await the green light to continue north.

Here is 45305 with 5Z33 Carnforth - Inverness positioning move: Photo 1, Photo 2, Photo 3, Photo 4, Photo 5, Photo 6, Photo 7 11.26 – 11.49

Then I moved up to Float Viaduct and opposite the State Hospital where I saw 67005 and 67027 on 1Z41 Shrewsberry – Edinburgh Waverley Express Tour
