Assault on Miles Platting

37410 arrives into Skipton with a railtour from Swindon to Leeds on 1st December 2007. Not fitted with OTMR, this was its last tour as it was due to be withdrawn on the 31st December.

In between these two photos, the Operations Director of Riviera (allegedly) decided (in his infinite wisdom) to switch on the genny van with the locos still providing ETH which resulted in a broken 37417 and leaving 37410 to carry on up Miles Platting bank unaided.
