    And a few from me. I hope last Saturday's Yorkshireman doesn't turn out to be the last time I see her in steam.

    A nice set there Henry.

    ECML yes but as 60009 was one of the A4s synonymous with the 3hr Aberdeen expresses so for me Scotland is just as much a spiritual home for the loco, and especially on the Stirling to Perth line where I first saw then as a youngster in the early 60s.
    These shots are from 1993 when No9 was used for crew training runs between Perth and Springburn, I wish I had spent more time on these.

    My collection of footage of No. 9 from over the past few years, mainly East Lancs footage, but also her climbing Camden Bank, arriving into Kings Cross, on last years Great Britain railtour, NYMR Gala with K1 62005 and a light engine movement with 61994 back in 2007.
