    Not sure how the actual position of the steamies in relation to the Box / train affects the spark throwing potential

    I'm sure it was posted on this forum many years ago that it's to do with weight restrictions on the Crianlarich-FW part of the route? WCR have previously run the 37 to the back of the train at Craigendonan (sp?) Jc to get around the restrictions.

    Happy to be corrected if this isn't the case, I'm sure I've read it on here before!

    Some rumour about George Clooney being involved? I wonder if Red penning 6233 was part of his contract? ;)

    This one seems to have slipped through the net.
    Locomotive Services Group No. 70000 "Britannia" on a loaded test run, (Coton Hill (Shrewsbury) Yard-Crewe Holding Sidings) passing through Telford Central.
    (Not my photo).
