    Always worth a step down from the trains and watch the run round, chance for a good look. As usual I am solicited for a conversation by a traveler - "What exactly are we looking at?" Occasionally, "Is it the Flying Scotsman?" - cringe!! P1170255.JPG

    IMG_8011.jpeg Traction Inspector Bob Dunn is very much enjoying himself in the second man’s seat of 7076 at Arley last week (30/9/23)
    (I do apologise for posting a fair bit from last weekend, but it really was a cracker of an event, and any excuse…) :)

    Good job they decided to change the front buffers on A4's to longer ones, otherwise it would be a little tight. Don't think they (Doncaster) expected regular tender first haulage. P1170230.JPG

    IMG_8094.jpeg One from last month, 25 years after digging all that crud out of the rad fan room behind me, I finally get to pose in the drivers seat, that day when I get to release the brake and stick it in notch 1 is going to happen shortly! :)

    I was wandering round Ropley yard during the time Bittern was there in blue livery. Wife asks her husband "Is it Thomas?"
