LMS Jubilee Class No.45596 'Bahamas' stands proudly at Carlisle Citadel last Saturday with "The Bahamas Renaissance", ready to move off to Upperby for turning and servicing. Can't wait to experience her charging over the Yorkshire Dales this weekend, heavenly won't even come close...

A bit more "Bahamasposting" this week, very much looking forward to seeing her on the Settle and Carlisle Railway for the first time this weekend. For now, a shot from last weekend, as LMS Jubilee Class No.45596 'Bahamas' clanks her way into Carlisle Citadel with "The Bahamas Renaissance" (9/2/2019) #lms #londonmidlandandscottishrailway #jubileeclass #45596 #bahamas #bls #bahamaslocomotivesociety #thebahamasrenaissance #carlislecitadelstation #carlisle #westcoastmainline #wcml at Carlisle railway station

With the sun setting in the west, LMS Jubilee Class No.45596 'Bahamas' sends her exhaust skyward as she powers away from Carlisle Citadel, having just received the green signal at Petteril Bridge Junction to take the road onto the Settle and Carlisle Line. 45596 is passing the site of the former Midland Railway London Road goods depot, with London Road Junction beyond the overbridge, the road to what was Carlisle Upperby (12B) turning off to the left. Such a privilege to come all this way to see her triumphant return, safe home you beautiful beast...

'Bahamas' back in Carlisle, at long last. Following a very successful run up the Settle and Carlisle Railway, making up for time lost due to a fallen tree at the start of her journey from the KWVR to arrive right time, LMS Jubilee Class No.45596 'Bahamas' stands at Citadel station. Such a lovely sight after more than 25 years away, she's got a bright future ahead for sure!

'Bahamas' heads for home. On route from Tyseley to the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, LMS Jubilee Class No.45596 'Bahamas' passes under Bennerley Viaduct. The now Grade II listed-1887 built-wrought iron structure formerly carried the Great Northern Railway's Derby Friargate-Nottingham Victoria Line across the Midland owned Erewash Valley Line below (5/2/2019) #lms #londonmidlandandscottishrailway #jubileeclass #45596 #bahamas #bls #bahamaslocomotivesociety #erewashvalley #bennerleyviaduct #ilkeston #derbyshire #ukrailscene #ukrailwaypics #uktrainimages at Bennerley Viaduct

St Martha's-on-the-Hill church watches over LNER Class A4 Pacific No.60009 'Union of South Africa', on what could be her final appearance on Belmond "British Pullman" duties, as she flattens the Surrey Hills with a cacophony of noise. No.9 makes the heavy 400 tonne load of Pullman's seem easy on the climb away from Chilworth at Little Ford public crossing, heading back to London Victoria after a water stop at Shalford (2/2/2019) #lner #londonandnortheasternrailway #classa4 #gresleypacific #60009 #unionofsouthafrica #belmond #belmondbritishpullman #surreyhills #albury #surrey #bestofbritain #stmarthasonthehill #ukrailscene #ukrailwaypics #uktrainimages at Albury, Surrey

Can't say I was enticed by just a single guest engine to the GCR's Winter Steam Gala this weekend, rather a step down on the B12 and LMS Crab last year, in my humble opinion. Still, nice to see so many have enjoyed what was on offer regardless. Thought I'd clutter the GCR filled feed with a shot of LMS Class 5MT No.45305 on New Year's Eve, having just passed under Rabbit Bridge and heading towards Swithland (31/12/2018) #lms #londonmidlandandscottishrailway #class5mt #45305 #aldermanaedraper #loughboroughcentral #gcr #greatcentralrailway #ukrailscene #ukrailwaypics #uktrainimages at Great Central Railway

Sad news that LMS Jubilee Class No.45596 'Bahamas' return to the mainline has been delayed further, outstanding issues with the Train Protection Warning System (TPWS) scuppering plans for today's light and loaded test runs. This edited shot sees 45596 steaming out from under the road bridge at Stratford Upon Avon station during her initial light test run. Here's hoping she's back home on the KWVR in time for her comeback railtours next month!

An edited shot of BR Standard Class 7MT No.70000 'Britannia' powering back some speed at Wellington, having needlessly been re-pathed on the slow line for a second successive time. Not sure what the signaller is playing at cooped up in their box to switch from the fast when a non stopping train is passing through, but that's the modern railway for you! Still, a good day was had in the great company of @nathan_mcl99 (22/1/2019) #br #britishrailways #standardclass7mt #britanniaclass #70000 #britannia #rulebritannia #lsl #locomotiveserviceslimited #saphostrains #wellingtonrailwaystation at Wellington railway station

Looking to the road ahead... A shot from the driver's side cab window of LMS Jubilee Class 45595 'Bahamas', while she stands waiting for the off from Stratford-Upon-Avon. One can only imagine the exhilaration of this view but at 75mph, can't wait to see her back on a full rake at speed (15/1/2019) #lms #londonmidlandandscottishrailway #jubileeclass #45596 #bahamas #bls #bahamaslocomotivesociety #stratforduponavonstation #stratforduponavon #warwickshire #fromthefootplate at Stratford-upon-Avon railway station

LMS Jubilee Class No.45596 'Bahamas' rests at Stratford Upon Avon, ready to make her first 60mph run on the mainline since 1994 on the return to Tyseley Loco Works. A shame to hear of the rescheduling of today's planned loaded test due to a few niggles that need ironing out. It's to be expected with any long term restoration, and hopefully it won't be long before she's back out on test and then heading home to Ingrow West!

Stockport Edgeley's Finest. Sheer beauty and raw power. LMS Jubilee Class No.45596 'Bahamas' heads for Tyseley, passing Hardwicke Public Crossing on route to Bearley Junction, competing her first mainline movements in 25 years. The anticipation for her loaded test run on Thursday is all the greater now... Welcome back to the 'proper' Jubilee!

After 25 years of waiting and 6 years of hard restoration work, LMS Jubilee Class No.45596 'Bahamas' made her first moves back onto the mainline this very afternoon. Running light engine proving runs between Tyseley and Bordersley, to be followed by a run with support coach to Stratford Upon Avon and return. She is seen here on the back road at Small Heath. I can't describe the utter jubilation I felt at seeing her back where she rightfully belongs, she's got a very bright future ahead of her! Credit to the Bahamas Locomotive Society for all they've done to bring this beautiful engine back to life, she's a treasure to us all!

With her 9 month stay on the railway finally coming to an end next week, today was the last chance to catch LNER Peppercorn Class A1 Pacific No.60163 'Tornado' in action on the NVR. Carrying the shedcode of the local East Coast Main Line steam shed of New England (35A), 60163 also carried a wreath in memory of the recent passing of a NVR engineer, seen passing under Mill Lane Bridge with the second train of the day to Wansford. Come Tuesday, she should return to the mainline for the first time since April 2018. It's been a long time coming! Thanks to @railwayphotographyuk and @ds_trains for travelling down from the north to join me on today's outing, it's been a cracking day (12/1/2019) #lner #londonnortheasternrailway #classa1 #peppercornpacific #60163 #tornado #britishrailways #applegreen #a1steamlocomotivetrust #a1slt #nvr #nenevalleyrailway at Nene Valley Railway

BR Standard Class 7MT No.70000 'Britannia' stands at Crewe, having completed her first railtour in over two years on the 2nd December 2018. A real shame her crew training runs have been cut short this week by bearing issues, I wouldn't have minded seeing a few of those, but work commitments paid paid to that idea! Never mind, there's always the first mainline movements of a certain double chimneyed Jubilee next week...... #br #britishrailways #standardclass7mt #britanniaclass #70000 #britannia #rulebritannia #thewelshbordersexpress #crewestation #lsl #locomtiveserviceslimited #saphostrains #ukrailscene #uktrainimages #ukrailwaypics at Crewe railway station

This is the Age of the Train. An edit from Sunday's diverts, as BR Class 43 No.43318 '1977-2018, Celebrating 40 Years, InterCity 125-The Journey Shrinker' leads 1S20, the London Kings Cross-Aberdeen across the Fens, having just passed Ely West Junction and is now on route to rejoin the East Coast Main Line at Peterborough North. I don't often get to see a HST from a direct side on perspective, so I'm so glad I was able to capture one of the greatest British designs of all time at such an angle this weekend. 40 years and still going strong, long may they stave off the IET's and keep this country moving!
