Just one of many line ups of LNER locomotives at Barrow Hill over this weekend
 
The Fab 4 event was held a the Barrow Hill at the former steam roundhouse located at Barrow Hill near Chesterfield. The shed was saved by the Barrow Hill Engine Shed Society. This event was held over 3 days in April 2012. I went on Sunday the 15th of April 2012.
 
This LNER event was supposed to have had LNER Flying Scotsman just after its multi million pound restoration by the NRM as was the 2009 event. But even after this event was moved from 2011 to April 2012 it was still not ready. The story of multi million pound restoration, that seems to have missed more faults than it found, is all over the railway press and the internet, and I am not going to pass judgement on who was responsible!
 
The NRM sent 3 of its best steam locomotives to make up for missing A3, A4 4468 Mallard, the world steam speed record holder, which is its star exhibit at the York railway museum (this does not leave the NRM very often) and its LNER V2 4771 Green arrow plus GNR 4-4-2T no.251 in the shed on the turntable.

Just some of the other locomotives at this event  were GNR N2 1744 came from the GCR. The new build LNER A1 Tornado and A4 Bittern were all present.  Out of ticket A2 60532, Blue Peter was based at Barrow Hill in 2012.
 
The video below of the "Fab 4" event at the Barrow Hill Roundhouse in April 2012 is 15:09 mins long
 
 
This video can be in seen in 720 HD for those of you who have a fast conection. For those of you who have a faster conection the 1080 HD setting can also be used, but this all but a pipe dream for most of us. Hopfully we shall all soon have a very fast conection!

 This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is on railways but it is not just on trains but all things railways, with photos, which I have taken from the 1970s till now. I take photos of all things railways, steam diesel and electric trains, signal boxes, wagons any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos.

This page is about the Barrow hill engine shed

Today Virgin East Coast, Grand Central and DRS are just some of the names on the trains. These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More!
