Locomotive lift at Crewe works

During the Great Gathering at Crewe works on 31st May 2003 the works staff put on a display of locomotive lifting and moving.
Class 66 66261 is seen being moved from one end of the works to the other and was also traversed from one road to another at about 15 feet above the ground.
