LMS 8F 8624 First Run 25/4/09


25th April 2009 was the first time since 1965 the LMS 8F, number 8624, run under own steam. This was the culmination of 28 years hard work by a dedicated band of volunteers that make up the 48624 Society. Resuced from Barry Scrap Yard in South Wales the locomotive first went to the original Peak Rail base at Buxton before moving to Darley Dale in 1991. The vast majority of the restoration has been undertaken outside with only the final few months of work being undertaken inside. This video records the momentus day when she finally came to life again.
