This picture finishes the week off to coincide with the biggest steam railway event of the year on the Great Central Railway from Loughborough to Leicester.
This was taken some years ago and shows class 8F 48305 double heading with Merchant Navy class 35005 Canadian Pacific as they depart from Rothley for the short run through to Leicester North.
The gala will include the newbuild class A1 Tornado about which a lot has appeared in the media, along with newly restored locos Oliver Cromwell, Leander and Lord Nelson together with the usual selection of home based locomotives.
Full details of the gala are available at http://www.gcrailway.co.uk/Events.aspx?ID=145
Have a great weekend, back on Monday.
