New Year Poser

Post by Graeme Leary » Sun Dec 31, 2017 10:40 pm

Happy New Year all - 10.30am on the 1st January here but guess still before midnight over your way.

I am particularly keen to get some photographic evidence of a (any) A1s or A3s working the West Riding Pullman and especially carrying the express headboard on the loco. Steven Banks mentions in LNER Passenger Trains and Formations (p176/7) that 'Bayardo' was seen in front of a 6 car set arriving at Leeds Central and somewhere else I have seen reference to 'Victor Wild' working the WRP but 'proof' of any A1/3 loco - and date if possible - would be a good way to start 2018. (I have plenty of photos of C1s and some C7s working the express but the shots of A1 or A3 Pacifics are somewhat elusive).

Many thanks.
