Weekend Steam: Fantasy Double Header!

 The final day of the Welsh Dragon tour would see unusual double headed pairing of LNER B1 61306 Mayflower & LMS Jubilee 45596 Bahamas. The pair are seen on the climb away from Shrewsbury at Bayston Hill and Condover on the Welsh Marches Line. We also managed a bonus shot at Stokesay Castle after the dynamic duo stopped at Craven Arms for longer than expected which gave us those few extra crucial minutes to get set up.

Love the "tail gunner" locomotive at the rear. Probably providing electric power, hot water for the "loo", and maybe a bit of dynamic braking for the tea kettles. Must have been a trick to coordinate.

Very nice, and towards the end that must have been quite an uphill slog.
