Thrashing “rat” East  Leake way, 120714

After the planned Great Central North weekend diesel gala was cancelled , the GC North to their credit arranged a running day for 25279 and 47292. With good weather, 4 Mk I’s and Sulzer music on 4 round trips it was a superb day out.

A visit to the GC North is highly recommended, a refreshing world apart from the GC South..
