    Both she and I belong to that superior species known as people with brains. ;)

    And there was me expecting some nice Maunsell olive green Southern locos and all I see is the dreaded Greasy Wet and Rusty. [​IMG]

    I love a steam train. I don't profess to know anything about them, couldn't tell you anything of interest, but just love, love, love riding on them. I remember when our son was about three, we took him to the North York Moors railway. I *think* he quite enjoyed it but I was having a marvellous time and wasn't really paying attention. I also like tractors and steam rollers though so maybe I'm just a bit odd.

    God's Wonderful Railway, I think you mean. Love the blood and custard livery coaches.

    Unfortunately all my pics of rollers are of diesel powered jobs. Sorry. :(;)

    Steam trains don't do it for me, but give me traction engines, ploughing engines, showman's engines and rollers I'm in heaven. It's the Great Dorset Steam Fair at the end of the month and I've got the week off work. Birthdays and Christmases rolled into one!

    I thought that journey was just lovely but the view is much better one side of the carriage to the other.

    But I did love the Southern Bulleid Battle of Britain class in their fairings.

    Bulleid learned a lot from being Gresley's assistant.

    My main gripe against Bulleid was Malashite green, ghastly garish colour, one reason why I model mid 1930s before that was introduced.

    Do agree. Awful compared with maroon or maroon & cream. Or even a darker green.

    Um, this is a bit late, but probably the right place.

    There is currently an hour of steam on BBC4 - Tornado, the 100mph Steam Engine, followed by the Return of the Flying Scotsman.

    They'll probably be repeated at some time. On Dave or somesuch.

    They are already repeats, not their first repetition either.
