Hi again Topspotter, Thanks for all the comments on Scotland. We stayed at Fort William that holiday in 2007. I wanted to ride on ''The Jocobite '' I managed to get a good shot of the Glenfinnan Viaduct from the train and it became my first photo put on Google Earth.

Our paths must have crossed at the Barrow Hill Gala 2007. It was marvellous to see Mayflower and all the others in such immaculate condition. I remember seeing it at New Street Station in the early sixties when I was a spotter, like yourself. Of course it was much grimmier then
