The year will be well remembered as one of the best yet, with an extensive programme of steam throughout the Northwest, very little fire risk, and as a consequence, a distinct lack of diesels within train consists (but let's not get into that debate...!)

The latest in our popular series starts on a beautiful January day, with 45690 Leander working out-and-back over Shap due to the on-going closure of the Settle & Carlisle line north of Appleby. Ahead of the re-opening special at the end of March with 60103 Flying Scotsman, we extensively feature 60163 Tornado working the 'Plandampf' service-trains in mid-February between Skipton and Appleby.

We also extensively feature Scots Guardsman's work prior to withdrawal in August for major overhaul, on the Settle & Carlisle, Shap, Beattock and the Cumbrian Coast route. Other highlights include the return of 35018 British India Line, alongside memorable performances from the Duchess, Galatea, Leander and 48151. We also had time to capture 60009 Union of South Africa on test around the Carnforth Circle, following repairs.

All in all, a great year - and at over 3 hours long - best served in chunks!
