50 years ago Today

9th Sept 67 was effectively the last day of LNER steam.
Isnt it wonderful that today I can "pop down" to the mainline and see A4 60009 come chattering past?
A big thank you to anyone involved in steam preservation!

G'Day Gents

Rather a sad fact, no more LNER steam, but at least some are 'alive'.
