The Settle and Carlisle Princess

12 April 2003

47 798 Prince William shunts the empty stock at Bangor

The first ever Pathfinder tour from Bangor featured LMS steam power from Chester to Carlisle via the S&C - how could we resist?

Stanier pacific 6201 Princess Elizabeth backs onto the stock at Chester. This comprised
Support Coach M17019
Coach A W5209
Coach B W5009
Coach C (standard/buffet) 1863
Coach D 3098
Coach E W3140
Coach F 3112
Coach G W3122
Coach H 3068
Kitchen Car 1699
Coach J 3069
Coach X W21272
We were lucky enough to be in coach A!

37 695, a past North Wales Coast visitor, was stabled at Warrington Bank Quay, our final pick up point

The princess sounded wonderful and performed immaculately

6201 and support coach are detached at Carlisle and we return behind 47 798
