A down van train between the tunnels
A down van train between the tunnels
The 1411 Kings Cross to Edinburgh vans would follow hard on the heals of the 1405 Kings Cross passenger. Normally a short van train that could run quite fast one would see many different types of locos working this train. Here a London Midland Region class 40 is pictured , rather unusual as it must have been borrowed. Normally it would be an Eastern Region loco on this train. This was rather a nice rural spot to spend walking around on a fine summers afternoon. The track gangs equipment does rather litter the railway embankment.
