    Saw a narrow gauge steam loco heading north up the M1 on Friday evening. At a guess I passed it somehere around Northampton, give or take 20 miles or so. Didn't get a good look in the dark but it had a number like Ty2xxx on the side and was possibly dark green. Any ideas?

    Zooming in on the picture to make out the number, is that 3297? If so it's been to NNR before (28/1/2014 to 5/3/2015 when it went to Alan Keef for a couple of weeks before going to Pairi Daiza.)

    Can't see the photos from work but 3297 is a plausible number for what I saw, I tried to remember it for the remaining hour of my journey but evidently not very well. Thanks folks.
