Steam Train at Shipley

This would have been a common site upto the 1960's, a steam train approaching Shipley. Nowadays steam excursions run by private companies are allowed on the national  rail network.
This train was on route from York to Carlisle.

Train  45407 'The Lancashire Fusilier' is a LMS Stanier Class 5 4-6-0 locomotive engine built at Armstrong Whitworth in 1937.
It is one of 18 surviving Black 5's.
