    Just got back and what a day!!!
    Just brilliant, and it was nice to see some of the IC locos running as well.
    Again Graham Lee and his team have done it again, can't wait for the 2010 dates !!!!

    Hada a great day on Saturday, the weather was superb and the locos were superb. Had a footplate ride on the Harrogate Peckett and some interesting runs with othyer locos. The diesel loco Baadger is an absolute beast too!

    Interesting report on the La Meuse. I was on the final run and noticed the pressure gauge on arrival back at Statfold, just shows what can be done.
