Ex-LNER Thompson class B1 locomotive 61264 at Mallaig
Saved from scrap in 1973, but not fully restored to steam until 1997 at a cost of almost a quarter of a million pounds, this is one of the last two of this class of engine still in existence. In summer 2006 it was pulling tourist trains on the scenic Mallaig line - the one featured in the Harry Potter films... Here it has just run round to the other end of its train at Mallaig.
