The East Lancashire Railway is thrilled to announce a special visitor to our Spring Steam Gala, 2 – 4 March 2018, LMS Jubilee Class No. 45690 'Leander'*. Named after the tragic hero of an ancient Greek myth, we trust 'Leander' will meet with a much more agreeable fate during her visit to the ELR. The loco was built in 1936 in Crewe and has seen extensive service at heritage railways and on rail tours across the country and will be a real crowd-puller when she takes to our tracks in March.
