34067 ‘Tangmere’ at speed through Chelmsford station. The Cathedrals Express.

This is the ‘Southern Region West Country Class and Battle of Britain Class steam locomotive, 34067 ‘Tangmere’ at full steam heading north through Chelmsford Railway Station (UK) on December 8th 2009 with the Cathedrals Express Carol Concert Special to Ely Cambridgeshire for an afternoon carol concert in the Cathedral there. Designed by Oliver Bulleid, 34067 entered service in September 1947 and was withdrawn in November 1963. Out of a batch of 110 locomotives 20 still exist in preservation but 34067 is the only one certified for mainline metals use. Tangmere was a late replacement for A4 60019 ‘Bittern’ on this railtour as that locomotive has route availability issues on the line between Ipswich and Bury St. Edmunds. This is a first for me.. never seen Tangmere before.

Black Five 44932, The Cathedrals Express to Sherbourne, 7th Dec 2010

Preserved ex-LMS steam loco no 44932, a Stanier “Black 5” 4-6-0, pulls The Cathedrals Express, a special excursion train by Steam Dreams, from London to Sherbourne on 7th December 2010. The Black 5 was a very successful loco. Based on the GWR “Hall” class, 842 were eventually built between 1934 and 1951. 44932 was built in 1945 and was one of the few locos rescued from scrapping. We see the loco making a noisy departure from Staines as it crosses the River Thames, and then 40 minutes later leaving Woking a bit more quietly, as it had a red signal awaiting it.
