Photos and Video – Steam Train through Eccles Station

Last Tuesday while at the train station for my regular chat with Stuart at the ticket office, someone asked if they were allowed to stand on the platforms a while as there was a steam train due! I really like to see steam trains, there’s something about them, mostly the smell, I think.

I messaged dad with the details and he popped along with his camera to hang out on one of the platforms. A couple of his photos are below, along with his “test” shot of a passing Transpennine Express train. There’s also a bit of footage I shot from the top of the station steps with my phone.

The train was the Lancashire Fusilier and you can read all about her here.
