I suppose you don't mean the parliamentarian leader from the mid 1600's. ;)
Fly fast jets and/or C130s over my house please, I'm bored!

I refer the young gentleman to my post here.

These steam fanatics think history only exists between the creation of British Rail and the appointment of Dr Beeching. :))

Your initial thoughts in that thread were similar to mine :))

It's been a while since I have mentioned this, so it is now probably worth repeating:

The best place to keep track (no pun intended!) of 'Main Line Steam Excursions' and 'Locomotive Movements' is to check on the excellent uksteam info website:

http://www.uksteam.info/tours/trs11.htm

You will need to know your Locomotive Number (eg: 'Oliver Cromwell' is 70013). However, when you click on [Times] for a particular Excursion, the Locomotive Number and Name will be scheduled.

Paste it into your 'favourites'. Enjoy!
