    Heard a whistles and tones this morning across Cambridge this morning, any ideas what it could be? Can’t find anything on RTT so I’m wondering if it’s a certain Gresley 4-6-2. Unfortunately I’m at our other site so I can’t pop my head over the fence to have a look.

    Brilliant! Who would have thought when BR got rid of steam in 1968 that 55 years later we would see sights like this? I certainly didn't.
