6233 Diggle 9 March 2002

Coronation Class 4-6-2 6233 Duchess of Sutherland slogs up to the summit at Diggle in the rain on 9 March 2002 with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z46 07:58 Liverpool Lime Street to York 'Yorkshire Coronation' railtour. Despite the 1 in 125 gradient and the wet rails the loco is making fine progress. The lock gates on the Huddersfield Canal can just be seen above the loco's cab.
