Hi Alan, Excellent trackside photo as usual. Tangmere is a strange name something to do with the battle of Britain but an impressive loco nne the less. I hope you are well

I remember seeing this engine now and then on the Waterloo to Exeter line at Gillingham or Templecombe on passenger work ~ So a YSL for the memory Alan and a cracking good shot too ~ Tangmere was a fighter air station nr Chichester ~ West Sussex Alan ~ Hence the connection to the Battle of Britain ~ All the best ~ nick
