SK5808 : A 'Crab' at Leicester North

taken 9 months ago, near to Birstall, Leicestershire, Great Britain

A 'Crab' at Leicester North
A 'Crab' at Leicester North
LMS 'Crab' 2-6-0 No. 13065 at Leicester North on the preserved Great Central Railway. It is just about to reverse round its train for the return journey to Loughborough. The carriages at Leicester North are beyond the station buildings and it's quite a walk to the other end. This layout was necessitated by the need to provide sufficient space for the locomotives to draw forward clear of the points to the loop so they can run round. The original Birstall Station here was an island design out of sight to the right.
