60007Sir Nigel Gresley, Darnholme 25/10/2009
The next day the driver of 60007 asked what an earth was the huge black object on the bank at Darnholme! I had to admit it was my rather large Microphone Zeppelin.

 
   
825 Darnholme 25/10/2009
Smoke rings and some nice sounds.

  60007 Sir Nigel Gresley, Grosmont 26/10/2009
First train of the day and a lot of slipping, but Gresleys driver was in a bit of a hurry.

After a broken tender spring the previous day the 7F's fitter checks that all is well with the replacement.

The 7F now sounds more like its ready to do battle with the Mendips after some maintenence at Grosmont.

A lot of priming put paid to what started of as a promising climb.

The loco changes at Grosmont are well worth spending an hour or two watching, professional to say the least.
