    Totally agree - as others clearly do! What a contrast to, say 1955-60 (Not that I remember those days) when the spotters' cry was often "it's only another Black Five!"

    Anyway, as we can't have too many, here's another one - 44932 at Afflington. (Swanage Railway) 13th June 2013. 44932 Afflington small.jpg
