The Scots Guardsman steams through Cheadle Hulme on Sunday 21 August 2016
Dozens and dozens of the Cheadle Hulme community turned up to Cheadle Hulme Station on the morning of Sunday 21 August to see one of the finest pieces of machinery to be made on these shores – The Scots Guardsman. Not in over 50 years has Cheadle Hulme Station seen this masterpiece.
Historically it is the main rival to the Flying Scotsman and showed it is second fiddle to nobody with the crowds it attracted. An informative post from I Love Cheadle Hulme’s Facebook page showed to over 20,000 people that this train was en route and a good number of those people showered the train in applause as it flew past on it’s way from Stockport station to Manchester in all of its engineering elegance.
A fine sight to see on a Sunday morning and one that will remain with us for a very long time…
