Leander – a day out in the southern Pennines

Here’s an account of a trip out getting on for 30 years ago – to see and photograph a special hauled by ex-LMS “Jubilee” no 5690 “Leander” (a locomotive I’d met for the first time in Barry scrapyard). Later in the day, a quick peep at Dinting, and a look at the western portal of Standedge tunnel, near Diggle.
