    45562 Alberta seen by the old Midland shed, nearly got caught out setting up so the tripod is not quite level.

    ,Please drop this galberta nonsense, it's Alberta atm, and long may she continue in that guise! In fact i wish they would change loco identities more regularly. I for one would love to see some of the jubes that used to roar through Kettering when i was a lad,

    Thanks, Henry. I don't know about "always", but it certainly seemed to be the case today.

    At least London spotters could see the Holbeck jubilees at St Pancras and 14B, especially before 70053/4 came to Holbeck. Some of the others--- Barrow Road, Corkerhill, Bank Hall, Newton Heath etc --- were just impossible. Was any other class of named locos so widely spread?

    Well, if you take London termini, for example, off the top of my head the Britannias were seen at Paddington, Marylebone, Euston, Liverpool Street, Waterloo and Victoria. Can't think of any other class with that pedigree.

    .... and St Pancras (9E ;55A) before the Peaks arrived. And KX (Cleethorpes)! Can't remember any at Waterloo, but 70009 was there before my time.

    But you could see every Brit* without leaving London. No chance with the Jubilees.

    * maybe except 70050-2 at Polmadie.

    Waterloo - 70009 worked the Bournemouth Belle several times but not, as you say, a regular visitor to Waterloo.

    Possibly because there was nothing at York to use it! (Other than 60163, which had a separate path.)

    This path is in RTT every Friday until 25th September, and is obviously there to allow the SSE loco to return to Carnforth. Whether it is used or not I guess will depend on whether Carnforth have need of the loco, or if it needs attention, before next week's SSE.
