Steam preservation in the 1980s & 90s

It was recent in 1993!

34039-text-needed

Back in 1993 clearance work had been undertaken on the Leicester Extension, opening up this new viewpoint near Birstall, where 34039 ‘Boscastle’ is seen on the 14.25 Loughborough Central – Leicester North.  The coach immediately behing the locomotive is a BSO No. W9316, which is converted for the disabled.   It recently re-entered traffic after extensive overhaul, and carries WR chocolate and cream livery – the first Mark 1 on the GCR to do so.
