I always wanted to see this engine when a kid - and still never have yet - so great to see your shots of such a beautiful beast - thank you Jim for all of em

Greetings to you both

JAZZ, I never grew up!!!--- still like playing with trains!! ;>}

Nick, train journey was a one-off. Sir Nige will never be permitted to use this track again, the curves around the bend in the river were just too tight for her frames. (check it out on the map)

Thanks for your great comments guys.

Warmest regards,

When you reach your destination Karl, put up your feet, fill a glass with your favourite tipple (drink) and share a toast with me.

Your good health and happiness and a peaceful Yuletide!!

Kind regards----------------------Jim

SIR NIGE' is a good looking loco Bruce. It must have been regarded as leading edge technology in its day.

Many thanks to you both for stopping by ;>)

Isn't this the high speed locomotive, the first one that used streamline covers ? If i am correct this is the fasted steam loco ever in existance. And won the speed prize.
