55022 Heap Bridge 7 March 2010

55022 Royal Scots Grey passes Heap Bridge with the 2E62 09:37 Ramsbotton to Heywood service on 7 March 2010, during the East Lancashire Railway's Diesel Gala. 50008 Thunderer is just out of sight in the bushes on the rear of the train, and seems to be doing its best to emulate the Deltic's famous ability to produce lots of smoke, even though (or more likely, because) it is just idling and being dragged by 55022. Also just out of sight in the background is the bridge that carries the line over the M66 motorway.
