    A new arrival at York yesterday was the Ffestiniog Railway's "Spooner's Boat". I cannot do better than this cracking bit of film: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jP7uTC6FIc

    The Boat will be on display in the Great Hall over Easter.
    [​IMG] In the background you may just see our Class 47 diesel, 47 798, which was ticking over having become a runner again after its failure a few weeks ago. It is the intention to loan the loco to the Wensleydale Railway over 1-3 May weekend - a busy time with Tornado visiting Shildon too![​IMG]

    OK, who's up for hiring that for a ride down the Ffestiniog once NRM have finished with it. Looks like it could take 4 at a time :)
