Kirkby Stephen West, 13th June 2017

LMS 8F 48151 (Crewe, 1942) passes with ‘The Dalesman’ Z45 07:48 Chester to Carlisle.

The BR (LMR) Type 15 signalbox structure was moved from Kendal in 1974.

The train proceeds northwards to Carlisle, and bridge SAC/182.

153352 + 158902 arrive with 2H89 11:55 Carlisle - Leeds.

In review of my video I found that this Pullman Parlour First (FP) coach is now "AMBER" which was a new one for me. It is car E325E, at one time "AMETHYST", then on the Strathspey Railway as their 108 (on BR1 bogies as BR wanted their Commonwealth bogies back), later stored at the Mid-Hants from April 2005 until December 2013. Returned to service by West Coast in June 2017, also now numbered 99025.
