    Three years after returning to service the interest from the general public is still there. I was expecting it to subside by now but media coverage keeps in the spotlight.

    60103 arrived at Southall (WCRC) this afternoon: http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/U10793/2019/04/12/advanced
    Tomorrow (Saturday) it continues to NRM York: http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/U10795/2019/04/13/advanced
    Incidentally, 60103 appeared to be very busy on the 15 static display days too. Up to around 400 people a day queued up at Corfe Castle to visit it's footplate and see inside "Devon Belle" Observation Car 14. Fortunately for the open air queues - reasonably good weather was experienced on most days.
    Thank you "Flying Scotsman". You will be a tough act to follow!

    60103 passing Lockerley last Friday en-route back to Southall. It appeared that every overbridge, station and level crossing had at least 3 and often many more people there to see it. [​IMG][​IMG]
