A Russ Hillier photo charter with Jinty No47406. The collection includes a few shots of her running on the new Mountsorrel branch line.
Steve Cramp and the volunteers must be very proud of the work they have accomplished so far. We all felt very honoured to be able to photograph the first steam loco to run along the line that they have restored so far. So thankyou from me and I'm sure, all who were present.
Thanks must also go to the footplate crews and guard and anyone else involved in on the day.

I would like to mention that some of these photos were taken from positions on the the line that are not available to people who have GCR lineside passes these are only possible when possession of the line has been granted by the railway for an organized photo charter. The same applies to the shots taken from adjacent fields where the land owner has given permission!
