Weekend Steam: Triple Header In The U.K.

Mighty sweet stack talk Merle!  Many Thanks!




"Marsh Steam Videos™ 12.1K subscribers In this video we witness the sight and sound of THREE USATC S160s operating together for the first time in the UK since 1944, and for only the second time within preservation globally! Resident American Sisters nos. 5197 and 6046 will be joined by no. 2253 Omaha, which is making a flying visit courtesy of Peter Best and Dartmouth Steam Railway. The event takes place on the Churnet Valley Railway's Superpower Weekend, which is a fundraiser event, for the railway's pursuit of running trains back to the Staffordshire town of Leek ! The main highlight of the event was the final run, where we are treated to the thunderous sound of three S160 locomotives hauling an equivalent load of 14/15 coaches in weight up the 1/45 gradient towards Ipstones. An extra diesel was added to make the train heavier and to give all three locomotives plenty of work ! What a sound they made, I hope you enjoy the video !"
