I attended two galas at the Great Central Railway, Loughborough during the summer that I haven't shown images from as yet. This week features a few of the highlights during those events.
I've featured the Gresley N2 earlier this year and here it is again on a passenger train at Quorn bound for Leicester.
Only this sole N2 survives into preservation. LNER No. 4744 (BR No. 69523) was built in the 1920-21 batch for the Great Northern Railway. Now owned by the Gresley Society, No. 4744 can generally be found on the Great Central Railway when it is not out on hire at other heritage lines. No. 4744 is also a film star, having played the part of The Scotch Flyer in the film The Railway Children.
