    Perhaps we should have a thread for "what loco names get turned into by predictive text"?

    I challenge you to find a shot of a 92220 hauled Pines not on the S&D.

    That is easy. Bath Green Park station on the ex Midland Railway. S & D started at Bath Junction.

    I would imagine that it would be quite difficult to find a photo of 92220 on The Pines Express anywhere between Stockton and Darlington :)

    What's with all the shouting?
    So you'd like to argue with the maps and gradient profiles in Mr Ivo Peters books.

    But surely the railway that started at Bath, or Alderbury Junction or anywhere between Broadstone and Bournemouth is the S&DJR whereas the S&D is the Stockton & Darlington

    Mr Peters might be great at writing books and the knowledge of his local knowledge might be great for the south west. But the S&D started at Shildon and finished at Stockton - its never shut, trains still run along most of the route today and its even been on a banknote!
