Steam up the Khyber

John Tillman rode one of the charter trains in early 1998 and has sent me these photographs.  They give an idea of the photographic opportunities of this spectacular ride but the lead loco was not in the best of health this day, hence little exhaust.

Ready to start from Jamrud.
