THE historic steam train dating back to the 1930s which became stranded in Warrington, attracting excitement for local trainspotters has taken to the road!
The “Union of South Africa” steam engine ended up in the old Dallam sidings at the weekend after “running hot” on it’s way from Crewe to Carlisle.
Engineers have been working to get the tourism train back on the rails without success.
It left about 6.30pm tonight (Wednesday) heading for Crewe via Dallam Lane, Kerfoot Street and Winwick Road to the M6.
It’s British rail number is 60009 and the A4 class locomotive was designed by Sir Nigel Gresley and built at the Famous Doncaster Plant works in June 1937 by LNER.
