    Pendennis even earlier, a picture I took on the Swindon scrap line in 1964. Note nameplates still attached, in those days it was possible to buy a nameplate direct from the works. I think they just weighed them and charged the price of the...

    I think the Envoy was the only time I saw 4079 out and about. You only have to look at the first coach to realise how different things were. Where did those 43 years go ? [ATTACH] [ATTACH]

    Ah thanks. I must be having a blonde moment - focused on the “5” and didn’t spot the other digits were scrambled! Tom

    The number in the photo is 3105 which was her Crewe works number and which she ran with before reverting to 1304.
