BR Standard 4, 75078 first venture onto the Branch

Having featured the first run of 75078 along Haworth loop, today was a red letter day for the Standard 4 Locomotive Society when their engine ventured out onto the branch for a light engine run up to Oxenhope and down to Oakworth.

We had a photographer out and about for the event who reports the engine to be in fine fettle. Of course followers will now be speculating as to when 75078’s first run in passenger service will be made, anticipated to be at the end of February Winter Steam Gala.

  1. Over the next few months 75078 may be the only 75xxx in working order, and, possibly, the only one in black livery with high sided tender for some time?
