After a long absence caused by a spell of poor health I finally managed to re visit the Great Central Railway.. It was nice to see a few familiar faces on my wanderings with the likes of Clive Hanley and Norman Bates turning up at various locations. This was a trial run to see how I coped with having a whole day out on a railway and I must admit it did wear me out a tad so I chose to do locations that needed less walking to get to. I suppose I've just got out of condition!
I was a little disappointed that the Standard 5 was not running but this was made up for by one of my favourite loco's Sir Lamiel and Battle of Britain class loco Manston which is visiting for the coming gala.
All in all I did enjoy the day but I am now suffering the consequences of what was quite a long day out for me. I ache from head to toe!
Hope you enjoy the images though!

I attended a Photo charter with the Standard 5 way back in November 2011 These photos can be viewed by following this link http:/​/​rickeborall.​zenfolio.​com/​p124813119
