    They did a few test trains in and out of Paddington a few months ago, using a 37 with cameras attached. Could be that again.

    Tornado passed through Keynsham on Wednesday night with a nice blast of the whistle from the driver.

    The loco looked very smart in her apple green livery but those headlights .....they were so bright !!
    Please keep them on dipped beam please lads. [​IMG] <BJ>

    Anyone know why Leander seems to be moving to Crewe on the 18th? To do the NWCE perhaps?

    Britannia was looking resplendent in the prep bay this morning at Southall when we passed enroute to Lords but not there when we returned this eve.
    Not sure if she was shunted back into the shed or has gone somewhere today.
