47793 [Saint Augustine] at Selside
SELSIDE - 29th December 2001
47793 Saint Augustine with a Birmingham New Street-Carlisle charter. After it snows you just pray for a bit of sunshine. I was extremely fortunate to get this photograph which is my all time favourite, it's a photograph you dream about - well I do anyway! - I wasn't aware this train was running and I had just left Settle in my car when it passed me heading north, I immediately put the old foot down and after a few "hairy" corners managed to get ahead of it here at Selside, my car was adjacent with the door wide open and the engine running, I had about 10 seconds to spare, and a little dog in the back seat that had just had the ride of its life wondering what all the fuss was about!
