Thank you Ian, that's fine. Yes I noticed that this would be part of the Programme on Friday. I will have to record that one (plus Wednesday and Thursday's) as I will be away at Swanage.

Edit: Just watched this evening's programme (recorded earlier) and which incliuded the Mid-Hants Railway ('The Watercress Line'). Great stuff!
