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.
Jim, in some hours I will sit on a train for my self and travelling home. But before I will do that I wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
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!!

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 ;>)

Greetings from Germany
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.
