This picture is interesting. I first passed through this area in either 1958 or 1959 by bicycle. I came up the road from Settle and then turned right to go to Hawes (near your belt cattle) and then proceed over the Buttertubs to Swaledale and our cottage. It was quite dark by the time I reached Ribblehead, and I remember the sheeps eyes reflecting the light of the bicycle light. It was quite a ride. The locomotive is a Class 66 built for the English Welsh and Scottish Railway which came into being after British Rail was denationalized. This was actually financed by the Wisconsin Central Railway of the United States. The locomotive was built by General Motors Diesel of London, Ontario and the main frame T-members were actually made right here in Sault Ste Marie by the now closed Welded Beam Division of the former Algoma Steel Inc. This is now Essar Steel Algoma. For a while locomotives with the same maroon and gold colour scheme pulled the Agawa Canyon tour train from Sault Ste Marie.
An interesting photograph.
Best regards from the Great Lakes country.
Hi Denis, thank you very much for your interesting details about the train and its story and about your memories! I love to hear them, they complete the picture.
I hope Hurrican Sandy didn't quite get up to you, though in Google Earth it looked bad also around the Great Lakes.
All the best to you,
