Just under 2 hrs of Scotsman and steam history. Also includes Ffestiniog, Alan Pegler and a bunch of other stuff.
Enjoyable, and knocks spots off anything on the TV at present.

Seconded ! The added smoke deflectors spoil the old girl's original looks though. (IMHO).

As an old 'spotter' I was lucky enough to 'cab' her at Donny works just before she went to the states. She had a bloody big silver bell stuck on the front. It wasn't really her at all. Guns

Can anyone remember in which year Flying Scotsman visited Cardiff?
Also, can anyone recall a prolonged driving wheel slippage incident that resulted in wheel tyre damage?

Are you sure it wasn't the classic Blue Peter incident ?

Blue Peter's incident in Durham resulted in considerably more than tyre damage. Sad

Suspect I've confused memories of a discussion from many moons ago.
Seem to remember we also touched on the only 'Black Five' with Stephenson's valve gear during our many chats.
