44767 St Pancras 25/03/1995
A far cry from the longest Champagne bar! Possibly the finest Mickey rests after its epic run from Stockport.



44767 Edinburgh Waverley 23/10/1994 There is a K1 lurking somewhere.


44871 Inverness 07/11/1993 "And on the Sunday there is an Inverness- Aviemore" This is how one tabloid Steam magazine described this fabulous run, the first southbound steam hauled climb of Slochd in preservation.


44871 Glasgow Central 31/10/1993


49229 Duchess of Hamilton, Carlisle 06/07/1996


46229 Duchess of Hamilton, Manchester Victoria 02/09/1991

    46229 Duchess of Hamilton, Selside 13/04/1991 The sound clip is from 07/02/1984 and in the 1980's this was just another run by Hamilton.  
    46229 Duchess of Hamilton, Langho 12/05/1991
Imagine how she sounded when she was really opened up!

60009 Union of South Africa, Kings Cross 29/10/1994

She might take her time in getting going, but what a sound she makes!


70000 Britannia, Dover Western Docks 07/05/1994 Myself, my two colleagues and the crew were the only observers of this historic event, as Britannia briefly paused in the terminus after turning, before heading back to Folkestone East to pick up her train.


70000 Britannia, Victoria 25/09/1994


70014 Iron Duke! Dover Western Docks 25/09/1994 This run brought down the curtain on Dover Marine.

    71000 Duke of Gloucester, Nr Smardale 01/06/1991  

71000 Duke of Gloucester, Carlisle 02/10/1995 Some very proud gentlemen after her record breaking run, sadly Ray Hatton recently passed away. Another good un gone!


73096 Waterloo 21/05/2003


73096 Woking 21/05/2003 The sound is from 04/09/1999, no wonder many crews prefered them on the 2 hour Bournemouths.



75014 Glenfinnan 04/09/1996 A clear view of Ben Nevis.


75069,7819 Hinton Manor, Aberystwyth 29/09/1991
