70013 'Oliver Cromwell' & 61994 'The Great Marquess' at Inverness

70013 'Oliver Cromwell' and 61994 'The Great Marquess' preparing to leave Inverness on a special railtour.

70013 'Oliver Cromwell' is a British Railways Britannia class 4-6-2 steam locomotive. Built at Crewe in 1951 it worked predominantly between Norwich and London and was one of four locomotives chosen to haul the last steam specials in 1968. It became part of the National Railway Museum's collections and was overhauled and restored between 2004 and 2008 to once again haul railtours on the mainline.

61994, The Great Marquess, is a 2-6-0 locomotive which was built at Darlington in 1938 as part of the LNER's K4 class and originally numbered 3442. It was designed by Nigel Gresley for use on the West Highland Line from Glasgow to Mallaig, via Fort William. Of the six locomotives in the class, The Great Marquess was the only one which survived into preservation.
