    Look forward to a triple-header Class 40 at the end of an ELR diesel event sometime in the future then?!!

    Goodness, that brings back some happy memories. I think I went looking for it - having been previously warned it had been through on a working earlier in the day - in the worst of the snowdrifts in 1979, in the cold and the dark :)

    40.106 was in good form at the SVR last weekend. It worked from Saturday to Monday.

    On the Saturday I filmed it hauling 8 LMS maroon coaches. As the 40 is in BR green it looked very smart.

    Boy does that loco sound good when it accelerates. <BJ>
