A double headed rail tour hauled by two Black Five steam locomotives passed through the north of the county on Saturday, March 15.

The train travelled on the scenic Kettering to Manton railway via Corby, Gretton and the Harringworth Viaduct and then went north via Oakham and Melton Mowbray.

Keen rail enthusiasts were out to catch a glimpse of a bygone era – some of their pictures can be seen in the slideshow above.
