50031 Calderbrook 26 August 2005

In the pouring rain that was to set the scene for all three days of the tour, 50031 Hood is just about to enter Summit Tunnel at Calderbrook on the Todmorden route across the Pennines with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z40 06:55 Birmingham New Street to Kyle of Lochalsh 'Whistling Scotsman' railtour on 26 August 2005. Obviously the 50 was going to be replaced with 40145 (at Bradford), otherwise the tour would have been called the 'Hoovering Scotsman'!
