A tale of 2 Kings!!

Postby 350wedge » Sat May 14, 2011 1:15 pm

First off here are a couple of video clips of King Edward I and King Edward II at Didcot on 23rd April. This is the first time 2 kings have worked together in just under 50 years!! As and when I sort out the photo's I'll add them later!!

Fantastic!!!! Thank you for posting those two, very impressive, video clips 350w. Not quite the same as actually being there, but certainly the next best thing. Quite a momentous occasion! Look forward to seeing the pics.

Just Outstanding, 350!

They both look like right off the
showroom floor!

I'll bet PW can't WAIT to see HIS
loco under her own power like this!
