    I quite like the headboard. I would imagine it's a replica, not an original worn pre and (for a while) post war by the Flying Scotsman train engines. Just guessing but it also may be John Cameron's sense of humour? After all when he is on board and UoSA is speeding along, he is "The Flying Scotsman"!

    It propelled the support coach round towards Hopwood ground frame Harold. Now, I don't know if it ran back to South Junction, propelled back over the crossover, into Castleton station and then back to Hopwood as I didn't hang around long enough, so I'm not 100% certain.

    It did indeed turn on arrival at Castleton and ran chimney first onto the ELR after this move.
