    The SNG people have put a lot of hard graft into that loco and this unforeseen setback will be real sickener.

    I had hoped to get Sir Nigel southbound hauling the train, but it wasn't to be, and I had to settle for a cameo northbound in the dark at Alnmouth bolted onto my video of Scots Guardsman yesterday.
