Hunslet rebuilt Austerity 0-6-0 2890 tender engine.102 viewsSaturday 14/10/2017 - "Flying Scotsman" to the rescue!! - Hunslet
Austerity 2890 heads to Ramsbottom to collect the coaching stock from 34092 "City of Wells" which had failed.

A shuttle service had to be cancelled to allow this rescue and allow the rest of the day to run on time to the timetable.

2890 refers to the build number by the Hunslet locomotive manufacturer and has been rebuilt by the Ribble Steam Railway into this handsome tender engine.
