Mayflower passes through Redhill

Last week the light just held long enough to take a few pictures of B1 class 4-6-0 ‘Mayflower’.  There were, of course, the usual warmup act of EMUs whilst waiting for the main attraction.


It was quite noticeable how small this locomotive looked compared to the Flying Scotsman a couple of weeks earlier, and it was working a lot harder to get through the station.


Providing heat, light and emergency back-up was a Class 33.  Good to see in itself.


The train paused at Redhill, and I nipped back to the car to drive a little way towards London to see if I could catch the train passing me.  I got there just in time to see it, but unfortunately not in time to set up a picture.

But I missed Clan Line again.  Brian was there…..
