    Yes, I got the same sequence of e-mails (although my spam filter had intercepted them all).

    Nice to see the diesel inside 5043. By the way its not the usual Tyseley '47 (47773) as it is a large logo one.

    My previous post might of given the wrong impression about me questioning the diesel No. I was only enquiring which one it was.
    Thanks for the info Rick E.

    Just had a call from one of the crew and they are now at Marylebone for the night, so if you're in the area nip down and say hello and give them a hand with watering the engine.

    sadly not, Prior commitments prevented me taking this train today, however I will be making my way to Marylebone later this evening when it comes back.
    It's a grey wet day here in London.

    Just got back from filming, start work on editing soon!
    I'd like to thank the driver for not shutting off through Wilmcote, there was hesitation but made a glorious sight. Seemed to run on time all day from what I saw.

    Sound from Saunderton. There is someone nearby and an airliner overhead at the end but try and listen with headphones, you'll get the idea. A good climb in damp conditions.

    Nice pics Rick, glad someone was out today, i had to attend a birthday party last night and wasn't really in a fit state to pay homage to Swindon's finest ](*,)

    Out of curiousity, where do loco's working into Marylebone go to service and turn and via what route ?.

    Looking at UK Steam 5043 was taken off at West Ruislip and the 47 took over, but not sure where E o M E was turned and serviced.
