    Hopefully so Henry, but I wouldn't bet against it being the SSE engine for 2019 .......

    Whoever might be upset one way or the other will only be grist to the mill when it comes to deciding what goes where Henry, as you well know.

    That would be great! :Joyful:

    Anyway week seven was a rare dull day and with a 37 shoving for most of the way I decided to break my golden rule (avoid stations like the plague) and go to York station in search of the elusive exhaust.
    Good Costa on the footbridge too. ;)

    There's some irony in there somewhere... Scarborough North Bay do have one "real" steam locomotive. It hasn't been used for the last three weeks due to fire risk.
