    Great, I'm glad you made it to there, steam tearing through the middle line always makes for an impressive shot and the fading light gives that extra atmosphere, helped by the mournful hooter on 5407, must be the one that was on 76079 some 12 years ago.

    I remember waiting at Copy Pit for 76079 and hearing an unusual whistle??, as the train was approaching
    At the time I was told it was off a boat

    I'm certainly not the first to upload a video here. Anyway, here's what I think is one of my finest shots in 35 years of videoing trains!





    I'd appreciate your views . . . of whatever kind.

    From what I can remember the whistle was carried by 75014 when in the ownership of Kevin Gould and team.It was I believe of South African origin.
    I could be wrong.I'm sure Mr Riley will know.
