A new arrival at York yesterday was the Ffestiniog Railway’s “Spooner’s Boat”. I cannot do better than this cracking bit of film: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jP7uTC6FIc
The Boat will be on display in the Great Hall over Easter.
In the background you may just see our Class 47 diesel, 47 798, which was ticking over having become a runner again after its failure a few weeks ago. It is the intention to loan the loco to the Wensleydale Railway over 1-3 May weekend – a busy time with Tornado visiting Shildon too!
