6233 Duchess of Sutherland storms past Lightfoot lane with the outward leg of The Royal Scot. 242 viewsThis will be the final trip over Shap for this stalwart of the mainline steam scene.

The good news is that the PRCLT will immediately begin the process of preparing the locomotive for another stint on the main-line, probably in about 5 years time.
