46229 Ribblehead Viaduct 14 August 1993

Coronation Class 4-6-2 46229 Duchess of Hamilton crosses Ribblehead Viaduct on 14 August 1993 with the SLOA Carlisle to Euston 'Cumbrian Mountain Express' railtour. Apparently the spirited performance of the Duchess over the Settle & Carlisle (a new record at the time), was in marked contrast to 47531's poor performance after the diesel had taken over at Bradford.
