To finish this series a view looking towards Whitby and this time another B.R.Standard Class 4 No.76079, like yesterdays engine but with a tender, awaits departure at the head of our train.
No 76079 was built at the Horwich works of the former Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway in February 1957 and entered service with the London Midland region at Sutton Oak shed. No 76079 is now owned by Riley and Son(e) Ltd, where it is fully restored and mainline registered. It is a busy engine, regularly performing on the "Whitby En devour" for the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, as well as other charters up and down the country.
IN the distance you can see the rake of Gresley coaches I included on my picture from the train window on Tuesday.
