Was there ever a more photographed train than the 15 Guinea Special? Here it is coming off the long viaduct and passing the closed station at Whalley that is packed with people wanting to see the last BR steam train on its way to Carlisle via the S&C. Few of those spectators could have imagined that not only would Whalley station eventually reopen but steam locomotives would again be regular performers on the line. See image 20498.
