    I would suggest the light test will be the Crewe-Carnforth move on Monday.

    Wonderful! Many thanks Steve for an excellent video in challenging conditions. Royal Scot looked pretty steamtight as it climbed through Bentham, the opposite on approach to Langho. But the noise of the leak had gone after the restart.

    Despite this typical LMS teething problem, it looked strong and healthy. A great year to come we hope, with two live green Scots at work in the North
