It is a mild and sunny day at Quorn and Woodhouse on the Great Central Railway. Two Locomotives are in service today running Christmas trains, namely L.M.S Class 5 'Black Five' 4-6-0 No.45305 and BR Standard Class '9F' 2-10-0 No.92214.

BR Standard Class '9F' 2-10-0 No.92214 complete with blue 'The Asbergers Flyer' headboard gets a rapid start from Quorn and Woodhouse station and hurries away towards Leicester North, the sounds echoing off the surrounding buildings.

BR Standard Class '9F' 2-10-0 No.92214 returns from Leicester North. A member of the Station staff is heard calling out destinations. L.M.S Class 5 'Black Five' 4-6-0 No.45305 arrives from Rothley and squeals to a stand, followed by more announcements. No.92214 gets the right away first and answers with a toot on the whistle, it's sounds are muffled as it passes under the road bridge. A whistle is then heard from No.45305 and it beats strongly away past the signal box. A squeak of signal wires is heard as the signal returns to danger.

Recorded from a very soggy field on the opposite side of the line, the water can be heard soaking into the sodden grass. L.M.S Class 5 'Black Five' 4-6-0 No.45305 arrives from Leicester North and clatters over the points past the signal box. A motorcycle passes over the road bridge as BR Standard Class '9F' 2-10-0 No.92214 arrives from Loughborough and stands waiting for platform duties to be completed. No.45305 heads away its sounds muffled by the road bridge. No.92214 acknowledges the whistle and accelerates away towards Leicester North.

L.M.S Class 5 'Black Five' 4-6-0 No.45305 stands at Quorn and Woodhouse station. The safety valves lift and Steam shoots high into the blue sky. The 'right away' whistle is heard and the black liveried locomotive makes a spirited start and powers away past the signal box and away to Leicester North.
