Fantastic :D Enjoyed every minute of your video, Cluny. Thank you. I have still yet to make a visit to Didcot Railway Centre, so this was the 'next best thing'. Great to see 'Tornado', 'SNG' and 'KEII' resplendent in their BR 'Express Passenger Blue' liveries - a sight that will probably never be seen again, hence the 'Once in a Blue Moon' title for this Event.

cracking vid Cluny looks like you are showing the early signs of the train bug ;) :p

Ahh thanks pw i was wondering what the GWR loco was. The king class loco's look amazing IMO. I never have liked the Streamline ones much, best loco's are,

Britania
A1
rebuilt builed's
king class
9f
BR standard class 7

I may add to the list as i learn more about trains but that would be a list of my absolute fave's for now.
