Carlton Marsh

Just 2 Cormorants, Little Egret, 15 Fieldfare and 5 Siskin reported today.
The highlight of the day was phoned in by Keith Bannister.  This one's for Chis Parkin, Les Corrall and John Seevior. The first Jubilee Class 4 6 0 to frequent the old Midland Railway at Carlton for 50 years. No 45699 Galatea ran from Carnforth via Wakefield past Carlton Marsh to Ardagh Glass (formerly Redfearn's) along the old Monk Bretton branch. What a wonderful sight to behold. After gaining permission the owner (on the footplate) decided to take his mates for a nostalgic trip.

Thanks to Ian Morley for the photos.
