46233 at Denton on 26th July 2013

LMS Princess Coronation Class No. 46233 "Duchess of Sutherland" passes Denton Junction as it works the 1Z80 07:07 Crewe to Scarborough outward leg of "The Scarborough Flyer" railtour on 26th July 2013. Organised by The Railway Touring Compay, and operated by West Coast Railways, this was the first running of this weekly summertime working in 2013. Having stopped for water at Denton the train was now heading towards Stalybridge and the Stanedge route across the Pennines to Huddersfield. Class 47/4 No. 47580 "County of Essex" was on the rear of the train to provide additional traction power and reduce the risk that the Duchess might start a lineside fire.
