Who is looking out of the cab. Paul Thommo ?

A photograph on the internet..... Ex-LNER Class A2/3 4-6-2 No. 60512 Steady Aim has come off the viaduct over the Caledonian Main Line at Kingmoor with the 9.20am Carlisle Citadel to Edinburgh Waverley train during April 1961. At this time, only five passenger trains each way ran the full length of the Waverley Route on weekdays, the others operating over part of the route only. [S.C. Crook/ARPT]

Last time I was in South Shields was for the Catherine Cookson exhibition at the library.

Hi Barry, yes a much younger version of me circa 1966 taken (from memory) at Perth shed while the last remaining A4's & A2's finished off their lives on the Aberdeen - Glasgow expresses.

It's nice to see that part of the Waverley route has been relaid and is proving very popular. Whether it will eventually get to Carlisle we will have to wait and see.
Cheers, Paul
