Lion-side Photographs

Here are a few line-side shots of 0260 'Lion' and 50007 'Sir Edward Elgar' hauling the Cumbrian Coast Express set of coaches. 
We begin with Lion' awaiting departure from Davemoor (top photo) with the southbound working while, in the top left-hand corner of the photo, can just be seen the engine shed at Anchwood, the terminus of the branch line from Gunnmere Junction.
Next we see the train passing Manxton, on the up fast main line. Note the very wide, specially-made, footbridge that spans the four tracks.
The third photograph shows Lion approaching Gunnmere, through the plethora of coloured light signals that we are currently in the process of wiring! Hopefully, soon, all of these lights will be fully operational.
The last photograph of the southbound express sees it pausing at Gunnmere Junction, the only intermediate stop for this particular train.
Finally, we see Class 50 50007 'Sir Edward Elgar,' passing at speed with the return working, heading north.
