Last week the light just held long enough to take a few pictures of B1 class 4-6-0 ‘Mayflower’. There were, of course, the usual warmup act of EMUs whilst waiting for the main attraction.
It was quite noticeable how small this locomotive looked compared to the Flying Scotsman a couple of weeks earlier, and it was working a lot harder to get through the station.
Providing heat, light and emergency back-up was a Class 33. Good to see in itself.
The train paused at Redhill, and I nipped back to the car to drive a little way towards London to see if I could catch the train passing me. I got there just in time to see it, but unfortunately not in time to set up a picture.
But I missed Clan Line again. Brian was there…..
