Flying Scotsman heading Mayflower over the Slochd Summit on 10 May 2019. Highest rail point in the UK. Look at the steam from full power! I have been over there a good few times as a kid behind double headed steam. I can hear the roar still!

That's the type of scene I'd love to recreate. I've almost got the mountain.

Scenes like that must be how many people fall in love with steam railways.

Yes Mick, especially if you can add the sound and the smell.  I can remember the London Terminii as a small boy, full of huge warm simmering beasts. The smell and the grime and the bursts of stem  and so on are still with me. Guards whistles, and then that Puff puff puff as they got under way.
