Douglas Reborn

A former Mid hants railway resident steam locomotive Hunslet 2890 'Douglas' recently returned to active service following a very extensive overhaul completed at the Ribble Steam Railway in Preston. Having done its initial running in there it recently moved to the East Lancashire Railway, Bury for final finishing and further testing of its capabilities in a more 'challenging' environment. 

'Douglas 'is expected to be in service at the East Lancashire Railway this coming weekend and on further dates to be confirmed until the end of November.
