       Shown last night on BBC4, Brilliant!  well worth a watch.
       Just the Driver and Fireman talking, NO voice over.

Had the pleasure a number of years back to travel from York to Scarborough when she was last on the lines. One of my old superintedents was chief engineer for her at the time. A wonderful piece of history and engineering. A few years previous during her restoration we had her 6 main drive wheels in to have new rims fitted and crack detected, various other parts where made or repaired at our factory as well.
Nice to see the old girl back in business.
