The North Yorkshire Moors Railway's Black 5 no 45212 is most frequently used on that railway's trains through to Whitby from Grosmont, or on the "Jacobite" trains in the West Highlands, for which it has a main line ticket. It's first seen leaving Grosmont during the recent NYMR Autumn Gala on 29th September with a train for Battersby. As soon as the Gala was over, and with the NYMR no longer running through to Whitby following the end of the summer season, the engine made a long light engine move to the south of England and, two days later, hauled a Cathedrals Express train on Thursday 5rd October. This ran from Faversham in Kent to West Brompton where 45212 took it over and ran via the Guildford "New Line" and the Portsmouth Direct to Southampton and on to Swanage. Here we see it on the return journey passing through Botley, the train having been diesel-hauled back to Eastleigh to reverse with the steam loco attached at the back. Thus it has worked from Mallaig to Whitby to Swanage this year, echoing the old BR-era description of the class as being seen "anywhere from Wick to Bournemouth".
