    The Santas surely cry out for a red engine up front ....
    although looks like meat and drink for the 8F ambling through Lunesdale and the Ribble Valley.

    What about open access to photographers ?
    OK now on a serious point, what likily routes will 35018 be accepted for, i assume an Merchant Navy will be as gauge friendly as an Jubilee? are there any routes where 35018 will not be allowed to run?

    I assume that the GWR mainline will be off limits as little above OO seems to fit these days.

    Unlikely to be passed for Cumb Coast, Cambrian, Oban, Bakerloo line,Circle line,HS1, District Line, Harrogate, Looe and Copy Pit for starters. Probably another 90% of NR too in due course along with everything else larger than a LU battery loco.

    Think the NER ran with the main engine and then pilot engine attached to the front. Sometimes it was hard to tell, when you have lines that are worked with two up front and one as banker as a matter of routine!

    Meanwhile... getting close to topic....

    Mini-BIL is green.
