Remarks & Notes 
'Hall' class 4-6-0 'Olton Hall', better known as 'Hogwarts Castle', storms the famous Beattock incline in South West Scotland. It's on it's way to the West Highland Line for more Harry Potter Filming. The class 31 diesel at the back isn't doing anything, but had to kick in a mile or so further on when 5972 stalled about two miles short of the summit. The grade is 1 in 75 - about 1.5%.
