For all you steam ehthusiasts out there here is a wonderful video of the one and only Jacobite on it's forty odd mile journey west which it does daily during the summer, shot in the autumn with some really nice scenery and excellent sound. Well worth the watching if you like that sort of thing. You may well have seen a well known location on film.

hello all,

just seen this thread, missed for some reason. some nice stuff here. but following (somewhat belatedly) on from Peter in 2016...... i too have a similar Leigh Lambert.... Spitfire at 12 o'clock. just a printed edition though! sorry about the rubbish quality on the wall so included a picture from google too. i love these pictures, though not everyone would agree. Ian.

Ah, Caledonian Railway... I've got a map of their network tucked away with all my other memorabilia, could never bring myself to throw it out...

Now I know rear wheel bearings can be a little so and so......plenty of practice last week.We pressed in six of these....blueing and scraping next methinks,they sometimes deform slightly being an interference fit.
