    First steam run for 25 years up to Aosta. I doubt anyone else is onboard but we are in coach 4. Seats 51/52.

    Very jealous! I did look at going, it wasn't too expensive (about £250 all in) but the wife had plans for yesterday and I couldn't get the day off work tomorrow sadly. What's the load, 5 coaches + van + diesel?

    Correct. In best Parker planning we arrived a bit late so not had time to get all of the details. Luckily middle son has just rented a house near Ivrea so free bed and breakfast! The weather today is fantastic.
