56097 at Ramsbottom on 3rd July 2010

The East Lancs Railway held their 2010 summer diesel gala over the weekend of July 2nd to 4th. Several members of the home diesel fleet were in action alongside locos visiting from other preserved lines. Having recently entertained the crowds at its home diesel gala on the Great Central Railway (Nottingham), coal sector Class 56 No. 56097 is seen doing the same on the ELR as it makes a spirited departure from Ramsbottom with the 2J78 14:26 Rawtenstall to Heywood service on 3rd July 2010.
