This week sees the last opportunity in the foreseeable future to see all six preserved A4 Pacifics together. They are at Shildon until Sunday. I went on Wednesday and took a few photos. I had the privilege of standing on the footplate of 60008 Dwight D Eisenhower which will be returning to the US soon. I must also say thanks to Northern Rail for anticipating demand and putting extra stock on the Saltburn to Bishop Auckland route.

A charity night at The Red Lion Norton in aid of the neuro-surgery ward at James Cook Hospital in memory of Tracey Harrington. Performances by Tempest, Russ Tippins and No Botha…
