    Thanks for the excellent coverage of your on board trip yesterday . Not been called a Kendalino before but it sounds good. I can now understand why the 47 was pushing if no water was taken.

    Thanks Steve, being on board and seeing your vid and Nige’s allows some of the pieces to come together. I thought that you two were hardy but your mate took it to a different level - it was bleak on the tops.

    Ivan does like to scale the fells to get super shots I must admit and his fluid tripod head is absolutely brilliant for the shots he does :):)

    I was watching on RTT and did wonder if the early start from Hellifield meant that there was a chance that you would be delayed by the preceding Leeds Carlisle service.

    The signaller saw that we could run ahead of the delayed Leeds Morecambe instead of following it. Luckily the Leeds Carlisle was running on time and had reached Blea Moor before we left Hellifield.

    Quality panning in those conditions.
