I present you with the one of the cream of Sir Nigel Gresley's locomotive designs, the A4 Pacific, Union of South Africa.
It is pictured here waiting to depart on the return journey of a special excursion to and from York on 25th.March, 2006. We were pleased to be passengers on the train and it brought back great memories of when my friend and I stood on Hitchin station on summer Saturday's in the 50's and watched these wonderful machines fly through with expresses to and from Kings Cross.
You will see another of these masterpieces if you look in on Wednesday.
