Today’s photo from the NYMR’s autumn gala shows Ex-NER 0-6-0 Class P3, LNER Class J27, No.2392 / BR No.65894 with a pretty decent freight working including a fish van, milk tank, cattle wagon, oil tank, and a narrow gauge engine on a flat wagon, in the train. No.65894 is doing her best to recreate steam’s final days in the North-East with steam oozing everywhere from the front end.
Before you ask – I have no idea what the significance of the Blue Star is. However, there will be more from the NYMR gala later this week; and a reminder that the first part of my memories of life on the footplate in the 1960s is now available, in print, or as an Ebook, which at £1.99 has to be a bargin.
Steam Age Daydreams began in 2014 and since then over 600 blogs have appeared on all manner of railway topics. They are all still available to read in the ‘Archive’ section. I am writing this to let you all know that when the existing webhosting contract expires in December there are, currently, no plans to renew it – Steam Age Daydreams will cease.
The book about my lifetime of involvement with matters railway will still be available on Amazon – Below, is the link to it.
