    Now up on West Coast web site. Similar to last year, starting from York and Chester. Steam on at Hellifield.

    All on Tuesdays, plus the odd Monday extra and a couple in October on Weds, Thurs. Looks like every other week until July.

    No sign of anything that would replace the Fellsman's Lancaster start.

    The season gets underway on Tuesday 30th with one originating in the east, and the loco will be . . . my guess, the 8F.

    Happy days,
    A1/2/3/4 's getting the London trains going out of Central up to Holbeck High Level. They used to back down from the long gone Copley Hill shed (I've been chased out of there as well.:D)

    The first time I saw 60103 'Flying Scotsman' was at Leeds Central, in 1960.

    A rascal.:Happy:
    And us lads always knew Holbeck MPD as 'Nineveh'....................."c'mon, let's go over to Nineveh and see if we can sneak in there":D Holbeck was easy, a VERY nice driver had made a large hole for us in the back wall of the shed.........I think he used a 4F to 'modify' the brickwork.
    We never managed to get in to Neville Hill .............but we sure as hell tried.

    I can see Mr & Mrs V on yon Dalesman this year.
