Ex-LNER Raven/Gresley 'A8' class 4-6-2 Tank No. 69855 (pilot). Built at Darlington in March 1936 as LNER No, 2148 and withdrawn in January 1960. Ex-North Eastern Railway W.Worsdell 'R' (LNER 'D20') class 4-4-0 No. 62360 (train). Built at Gateshead in December 1900 as NER No. 2101 and withdrawn in October 1956.

An inspired combination of locos with a strong North Eastern heritage was chosen for the SLS/MLS 'Northern Dales' railtour. Captured near Bedale, North Yorkshire in September 1955 on the Northallerton to Hawes leg, they make an absolutely thrilling sight.
