    Bro-in-Law tipped me off about this tour coming through Chesterfield today. Loco was down to be the "Duchess" with "Union of South Africa" in case of failure, but the "Duchess" prevailed. I've seen it a number of times before as it spends time at Butterley, just a few miles up the road from my home, but here it is for those not lucky enough to have seen it. Apologies for moderate photo's (phone camera), but 'In my defence 'yer 'Onour' it was cracking on a bit'!

    It veery tempting Ian you know... very tempting indeed :scratchchin: I've already got the nameplates and smokebox number with build plates in my stash, the big issue is do I send the dosh to Gladiator or to Pat Ennis instead because I do fancy doing a 9F :facepalm::scratchchin::thumbs::avatar:
