An hour in York

I needed to attend a meeting at 3pm this afternoon at York on my way back from Wales, so took the chance to have a quick scoot round to see what colleagues are up to and bring blog readers up to date with some of the happenings there.

In the next month, Mallard will leave for Shildon, and during Half Term week there are a series of events planned to say farewell – but it WILL be back!

In the South Yard, visiting Jinty 47406 is covering Half Term steam operations, whilst “Rocket” is at the Great Central. This is the Jinty’s first visit to anywhere after its restoration, and it’s here cooling down after passing a steam test and Fitness to Run exam today.

Finally for today, we had a preview of the new exhibition, Great Western Reflections, our contribution at York to the GWR 175 celebrations which opens on 29th May – do come and have a look.
