    That will be the spare for 600 Gordon. Whether it is useable will be subject to inspection, when the time comes.

    Frustratingly the camera was pointing North as she came into Bridgnorth, then almost as soon as she was in the platform swung back south again. I can understand getting bowled by a passing express when you're lineside but it seems a bit unfair for it to happen when you're watching remotely.

    From clips I have seen on YouTube the whistle got stuck on a couple of times going down Eardington bank but was soon sorted out.

    It is excellent to see Gresley in action once again after all this time. Well done to all involved. She looks superb in black. A nice excuse to post a link to this very appropriate song
