Perfect timing!

Thanks jf. I have always liked rail travel and to watch trains passing. These Deltic locomotives were always impressively smokey when setting off, so I was expecting it and it didn't let me down.

Keuth, I used to travel home from camp on one of these trains (Wolverhampton to crewe, then to Carlisle, in 1966!

There is a message on your answer machine for you.

Cheers marra!

Greetings skida: I knew that had to be a Deltic. As seen in Michael Palin's film from around that time. Great photo. PM
