Well I suppose it had to happen. In the middle of a fairly useful discussion, we get the usual load of anti GW rubbish from someone called Edward from a deprived area. I suppose that you believe that the ergonomic slum which the LNER provided for its footplate staff was superior to the GW cab? At least the GWR had proper water gauges on their tenders, rather than an additional footplate sprinkler. Having provided us with a sweeping statement regarding corks, perhaps you would care to enlighten us with which GW engines had "corked oiling points in three figures" ??
