It is a freezing cold day at the Great Central Railways final special event of 2015. The wind chill was face numbing and I sought shelter from the gusting wind in the lee of a large railway crane in the station yard.

L.M.S Class 5 'Black Five' 4-6-0 No.45305 gets the right away and heads purposefully away towards Leicester North. Dried leaves are heard blowing along the yard.

Great Northern Railway 'N2' Class 0-6-2T No.1744 gives a watery whistle and heads rather wheezily away towards Leicester North.

L.M.S Class 5 'Black Five' 4-6-0 No.45305 whistles, then heads powerfully away towards Leicester North.

L.M.S Class 5 'Black Five' 4-6-0 No.45305 is heard once more, this time departing energetically and whistling gaily on its way to Rothley.

S.R 'King Arthur' Class 4-6-0 No.30777 'Sir Lamiel' gives a long whistle before making a rousing departure for Leicester North. Bells are heard in the signal box.

Class 31 No.D5830, a Brush Type 2 in experimental Golden Ochre livery gives a good old fashioned BR Horn and heads past towards Leicester North with Great Northern Railway 'N2' Class 0-6-2T No.1744 unhappily bringing up the rear.

G.W.R Modified 'Hall' Class 4-6-0 No.6990 'Witherslack Hall' pulls into Quorn and Woodhouse with a groan. After a brief station stop the magnificent engine beats strongly away towards Leicester North. Bells are heard in the signal box once more.

L.M.S Class 5 'Black Five' 4-6-0 No.45305 with a late afternoon service for Leicester North.

Last train of the day for me, I was frozen, BR Standard Class '9F' 2-10-0 No.92214 shows its muscle and heads briskly away towards Leicester North as the light fades.

    I am just getting to know your sounds as I am fairly new on Freesounds... although I have 6 or 8 other DLed from you already. Many thanks for your terrific sounds, which remind me so much of the stuff my Dad used to listen to when I was much younger. Anyway, many thanks for your sounds. I'll be immortalizing them in an experimental piece of music which I am building!

    Lieber Konakaboom,
    ich war sehr erfreut, als ich deinen Beitrag erblickte.
    Vor lauter Glückseligkeit, sprang ich aus dem Fenster und liege nun mit zwei geprellten Rippen und einer Protease im Krankenhaus. Aber es hat sich gelohnt!
    Vielen Dank <3
