Stabled at Knottingley T.M.D. Royal Train loco 67006 'Royal Sovereign' stands along with long stored 56124 on 9th April 2005.
Having been stored there for around six years, the 'grid' was being prepared to leave and additional brake pipes can be seen below the cab windows. The loco did leave in the consist of an 'Enterprise' service 6 days later, and after all that time, I think this was my first picture of the faded loco in this position. The loco was repaired and brought back into service as 56302.
From Q2 2005: April - June
