Micky, 70000 hauled the royal train last month, so it has the (dare I say very nice) white cab roof from that. The roof is to be painted black this month, unfortunately.
36C - Based out of 50H and 36F

Ay up!

Apparently "Driver Wales" may have been active on the run. He was certainly on the footplate for part of it....
If I ain't here, I'm in Bilston, scoffing decent chips at last!!!!
