Steam at Stranraer

On the way back from Ballantrae after Saturdays walk,we took a little detour into Stranraer.We'd heard of there being steam engines in the town today.

From the 6th to the 14th of April 2010,there's a trip called 'The Great Britain 3-Great Britain by Steam 9-day Escorted Tour', run by the Railway Touring Company. Great Britain 111

This is some footage from it's visit to Stranraer.
The engines involved in the Stranraer visit were the 45407 (Black 5), and the 44871 (Black 5)

There's a big turn out to see them.
By the looks of how many people are in the carriages,it's been well subscribed.
From £1445 First Class to £1995 Premier Class,I suppose it's not bad for a nine day tour around Britain.

All the First Class carriages have girls names.
A piper plays in the station.

The two engines shunt to get on the same line...
...then hook up together.
Meanwhile at Glenluce,an inquisitive cock pheasant wonders what all the fuss is about.
