    Last question in P2 section----Or perhaps Would you have rebuilt the P2s in the circumstances of 1942? From limited reading, the answer to that is not tremendously controversial is it?

    60113--- but a reputation for being unloved? Many transfers between sheds --a bit unusual on the LNER?

    And we're done! I tried to spread it out a bit better than yesterday.

    Thanks to everyone for bearing with me whilst I have been posting this the last two days. I hope there's some things of interest in there. If you have any questions - do let me know and lets discuss them further.

    Best wishes, stay safe, and speak soon,

    Simon

    I’m aware you’re being sarcastic but still, glad to have given the general public a service this evening in rendering you so.

    Hahaha!

    I haven't had a chance to look at your presentation yet Simon, but is there much in there that wasn't on your excellent podcast a little while ago? I really enjoyed that, even though I had it on whilst doing some modelling so only properly listened to half of it. Just means I'll have to put it on again. :)

    Basically the lecture shows the actual material I’ve been working from a lot better.

    Visual aids do help enormously for getting points across, and in the case of the board minutes, show they exist and what numbers to look for when checking.

    Very clear argumentation.
    The numerical row 3 20 4 91 slides ,showing how much he hated Gressley, is a piece of art.
    Enjoyed it and will burn my Cox,Nock and Rogers books.
