Julie Roper’s award winning photo from 1993. Taken at 8.45 am on a freezing January morning at Burrs on the East Lancashire Railway.
Most preserved railways use the closed winter season for the type of permanent-way works which would have interfered with passenger services during the summer months – but few could give their trackmen this type of view with every shovel-full! Here we see Hunslet Diesel Hydraulic ‘Ninian’ in charge of a works train near the summit of the only rack and pinion public railway in Britain – The Snowdon Mountain Railway – which starts at Llanberis, North Wales.
