You're missing the 2BIL and TOPAZ from that list
I don't know what it is, but I could do with some
Says someone with over 10,000 posts!
The above is from page 21..
So nearly 80 odd pages, 1542 posts and 6 months later and the article in Heritage Railway looks like it was spot on!! Though I still doubt the majority of posters actually read it..!
Nothing like a good livery debate and I bet someone in Carnforth has been having a darn good chuckle.. Now when's the next loco due out - Royal Scot improved Barbie pink anyone??!
You should see some of the (mainly "supa swanky jacket like pet") hen parties that run round the streets here in York my friend!
I'll be at York Station tomorrow with a camera anyway (last week it was with a collecting tin for the RAFA Battle of Britain Wings Appeal - amazed at generosity of some railway passengers) so we'll see.
Living here does have some advantages but the parties don't always look like this.
Ahh well, the speculation and waiting is over. Looked magnificent approaching Wennington this morning, just after the sun came up.
Nice, very nice. Top marks to Mr Smith and all at Carnforth who have put the long hours and hard graft into turning a machine like that out.
VERY well done.
Get some miles on it, get decent reliability, and we have a winner.
A few from this morning
Have to agree also, that they have turned her out in an authentic livery and done extremely well can only do Carnforth well, they are certainly handsome machines need to sort out the steam leak if it dont settle down of its own accord and get some reliability and who knows David Smith might come to love her over his LMS engines So whens the first trip over both the S&C and Shap, taking about which, is it hoping to much that the powers that be might say leave the pair on the CCE
That looks sensational, well done all, can't wait to have a ride behind it.
^ What he said.
Well done all at West Coast. Looks terrific.
Despite all the froth, I doubt anyone does a better paint finish than Carnforth.
Put this in the Lune Rivers thread, but think it applies here as well.
An absolute beauty. Think it'll be a winner once it settles in. Every time I see one, I always pause to think about how fine they look.
I have often wondered if the rebuilds should have been renumbered into a new series As they do look more like a standard than anything else
Heard a report it may have failed, working on it at NRM.
There was a bit of a knocking sound as it passed, but it's still early days and probably needs to bed in. It's still a cracker, though.
Like 98818, then?
