In between meetings at York today I took a walk around the museum and took a couple of pics I thought I’d share. Here are two East Coast thoroughbreds, side by side after recent shunting operations and making a super contrast in front ends. It’s been a while since “Mallard” and the Stirling Single have been so close, but don’t they look good?
Recently returned from the North Yorkshire Moors Railway for bodywork and other repairs, Class 37 No. D6700 stands is the triangle area awaiting entry into the workshops once “Tornado” has gone back on the main line.
In the workshop itself, “Tornado” was separated from its tender this morning to allow the loco to be moved within the works, whilst in the foreground, Rod Lytton, Chris Beet and Dave Leyshon prepare to lift one of “Flying Scotsman”‘s wheelsets to investigate further the recent issue we have found with the uneven back to back measurements on the engine.
