Gresley A4 Class 4-6-2 No 60023 'Golden Eagle' at Skipton with the RCTS The Three Summit rail tour 30th June 1963. Right from the start this tour suffered problems with the injectors on 60023. The A4 worked over the S&C and the issues with the injectors spoiled the climb to Blea Moor. The problems had been sorted out by the time the A4 worked the tour back to Leeds City station later that day.
