    Another good (impromptu as I got all the arrangements done in 24hrs flat once I found out my car service was postponed by the garage) day out, and great to share stories with Oswald T Wistle.

    I enjoyed the run, but not the TPE back home! Left Preston 16 late, missed the 19:35 connection at Piccadilly, and ended up sharing a table with, shall we say, a sense and sensibility-impaired Leeds supporter from Wigan who had succeeded in embarrassing his partner. Tidy stuff.

    I had a very enjoyable day catching up with people (got a few tips from Victor too) plus enjoyed talking to 'new' faces from across the country. Fantastic scenery, great Locos, uncommon Double Heading and another complex day wonderfully put together by an experienced group of talented people along with RTC.
    If you cant get enough of seeing the Locos here are a couple of minutes of movements I took with a mobile

    Despite the cold weather and a few minor issues along the S&C it was still a great run out behind Mayflower & British India Line.

    Was onboard that tour and it certainly wasnt a dissapointment for me, by pure coincidence when I went out to see Mayflower a few days before this tour I said that id love to travel behind the B1 at some point in the future. But the issue is where it's based as most tours it did before it's overhaul were down south and the engine is allocated to Steam Dreams tours for later this year so will likely be staying down in London or other places in the south of england. It looks though that someone read my mind and decided to have her on the front instead of it just being BIL.

    Evening all, first time poster here.

    I was on yesterday's trip and had a thoroughly enjoyable trip. My first time over the S & C line, and my first time travelling with all of the loco's involved.

    I hope the numerous photographers we passed got the pics/video footage they hoped for. The scenery looked absolutely stunning, and my wife was very impressed with the stations along the route (commented on how lovely they all looked to which I fully agree)

    Cheers

    Ben

    Thanks Stephen. Yes, had a look at Birkett, but wandered back to Greengates in the end.
