The third visitor to this gala, which is slowly becoming a must see gala, is none other than LNER ‘A4’ No.60009 ‘Union of South Africa’, which was built in 1937 at Doncaster Works.
60009 is one of 6 surviving A4s, unfortunately, this is due to be withdrawn from service soon, so time to get one last ride behind this locomotive.

This locomotive is returning to the NYMR after a season of Jacobite specials in September.
