60009 Union of South Africa - North York Moors Railway
Coach 1 - Please note: Braunstone pick-up point not available for this coach.
Travel on a return journey from Grosmont to Pickering aboard 60009 Union of South Africa. This will be one of the last opportunities to ride behind one of the few remaining Class A4 locomotives designed by Nigel Gresley - currently operational and mainline certified until April 2019, when she will be permanently withdrawn. Built in Doncaster in 1937, she is one of six surviving Gresley A4s. Their streamlined design made them instantly recognisable, and one of the class, 4468 Mallard, holds the world record as the fastest steam locomotive.
