I think it was D8 'Pen-y-ghent' which became the first and last 'Peak' in regular service to travel over the Settle and Carlisle line on my date of birth.
44008 "Penyghent"
 
I have toyed with the idea of cycling up to JoG for a pic of the bike with that sign for the A-Z thread, but can't summon up the enthusiasm for the not very cycle friendly roads I'd have to use to get there.
Maybe one day. ^_^
From Stourton??
Up Pontefract Road?

I've ridden it a few times, since the M1 (as it is now) was opened there
I presume @Archie_tect, @AuroraSaab, & yourself all remember 'Cinder Oven Bridge'?
Ie; the hump-backed bridge, over the wagonway?

Apparantly, the 'name-stone' (from the apex of the bridge) is somewhere in Rothwell Country Park - the one at John O'Gaunts
I've asked a few dog-walkers, & other riders, when I've been in the area, but no-one can tell me where it is

I'll try; http://www.secretleeds.com/

It was always exciting to go up and over that bridge on the double decker home from Leeds when I was little... especially on the top deck at the front.
