The K1 is back!

After cylinder repairs last week, NELPG's K1 2-6-0 No. 62005 was in steam today for trials at Shildon.

If all is well after repairs, 62005 will leave on Saturday for a week’s running in on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway before heading for the summer season at Fort William. Here’s the by now obligatory “coal drops” shot!

One comment on “The K1 is back!

  1. I was really pleased when I saw this loco at Fort William a couple of years ago, and especially that it had been turned out at Lord of the Isles. My late father was building a 5″ gauge model of L.O.T.I before he developed cancer. A sad day when I had to let the kit of bits go, but I didn’t have the skill to finish it. It’s nice to see loco groups changing locos around, this was a most welcome surprise! Long may things like this continue!

    Great blog by the way, very interesting read.
