Stopped off at Leeming Bar to catch Tornado before she headed off to Northallerton to start her none stop run from there to Redmire along the Wensleydale Railway - the first none stop run by any train for many years. After getting some nice detail shots of her at the platform, and some departure shots, I headed up into Wensleydale to get her in action.
I'm yet to find a place up the dale that I really like. The outbound had potential but she lacked steam. The return was always had the likelyhood of being junk as she is tender first, but ended up quite liking the result.
Hey ho, can't win them all, but always great to see Tornado in action.
