60026 at Farrington Curve on 31st January 2009

Class 60 No. 60026 passes Farrington Curve as it works the 1Z60 15:32 Preston to London King's Cross return leg of UK Railtours' "Hills of the North Winter Wonderland" railtour on 31st January 2009. The train was heading east through Blackburn and Wakefield to Doncaster from where a Class 92 would take the train back to London. At the time the operational DB Schenker Class 60 fleet was in decline and facing an uncertain future despite its superior haulage capability on heavy trains.
