5199 in the News

Leafing through the various railway magazines in my local library WH Smith I noticed a large number of sightings our very own 5199!

Steam Railway Mag has a picture of her in the gallery section, an arty shot of the bunker in Boltons Copperworks, taken by Les Nixon from a broken window.

Heritage Railway Mag then has a half a page picture of her storming up the 1in 59 towards Bradnop in glorious sunshine, taken by Dick Manton.

And finally Railway Magazine have published a photo of her just coming over the summit at Ipstones, 1063 ft above sea level, taken by Dave Gibson.

It's nice to see 5199 is being kept in the news at the CVR. Check them out if you can.
