    Very nice. Sadly I was too young to be around for the photo charters with 55189 in black so would be very interested to see any other shots you have! Hoping to organise a couple of charters with 419 on the Caley coaches once she's finished following the success of my previous events at Strathspey with 46512 and Bo'ness with 62712!

    I started my "career" on her back in 1974 as a Falkirk Wean armed with a bucket and a rag.

    happy days

    'too young'! and it was only 7 years ago.
    Here's a few more from the three days of charters run by Richard Newton (3P20) on 27th February to 1st March 2009.

    And for @Snifter one from 1972 ( think I qualified as 'too young' back then ) - a few trips on 419 up and down the yard at Grahamston and I didn't need any more convincing to become an SRPS member.

    Although I think it's been done before, I'll look forward to the charters with the Caley coaches, it's a near perfect combination.

    Thank you Scott, I can almost hear the Westinghouse pump lazily keeping the reservoir topped up. Happy days at Springfield yard, Wallace Street.

    I do love the sound of a Westo pump. Always makes me think of Liverpool St on a murky day.

    @steam_mad Would have been barely out his nappies there! Although I'm convinced he still requires them sometimes :D
