    Or maybe that lovely Apple Green livery? It really is a work of art.

    I've never quite worked out if my fondness for the B12 is a result of it's amazing survival (we collectively owe much to the late Bill Harvey), or merely a result of sticking graphite '3in1' in my OO gauge one's chimney, where the Hornby 'smoke...

    I do like the B12, shame I don't have a mantelpiece big enough to put it on!

    Haven’t seen the B12 in steam for two years. Beautiful.

    Thought I'd try and make this a bit more relatable Paul, seeing as we're not really seeing eye to eye; Imagine some railways started putting these up in station waiting rooms: [IMG] You'd quite rightly cry foul that they are in no way heritage...

    Because PH invariably gets into a hole and then keeps digging deeper rather than shut up or, shock, horror, admit he is wrong.

    Yes, but along with alcohol free beer, they seem to be missing the critical thing that is important to their success.

    Just wanted to jump in and say: every time I have been on the South Devon, and the last time was within the past month, the Edmonson ticket is the one the TTI has cared about. (and to jump back on another point, I show my SVR pass at the ticket...

    You've fallen into the same trap! Time moves swiftly on...that 'modern Freightliner livery' disappeared 20 years ago! Not that I like it much either! Today is tomorrow's heritage. The only constant is change.

    I'm curious as to how many of these people claiming no one cares about cardboard tickets have actually gone through a train of 8 carriages and clipped them all. For many kids it's a highlight, something to break up the monotony of the train...

    No temper as far as I can see, just a request to stick to the subject and leave your pet hates to an appropriate thread.
