The "Three Peaks Challenge by Rail" special, 1Z50, ran once again this year in aid of the Railway Children Charity. Due to depart from Euston at 15:54, it was delayed by difficulties with the coaching stock, eventually leaving around 20 minutes late. 86101 "Sir William A. Stanier FRS" leads the 11 coach train together with 67013 "Dyfrbont Pontcysyllte" soon after passing Roade and approaching Blisworth at 17:13 on Thursday 23rd June 2011. The electric loco was working as far as Crewe, the 67 then taking over for the run to Bangor and the first climb for the participants of Snowdon. Digital Image No. GMPI9512.
