    I've been out of Stratford behind three Pacifics and a 4-6-0. None had any trouble. On the other hand, 70000 had immense difficulty departing there on a frosty December afternoon back in 1992. Crew had been told they could not use sand. I had my sound equipment set up near Wilmcote and nearly froze to death waiting for the Brit to get under way. I counted c.100 slips before she finally found her feet.
