  1. 41241 is a London, Midland & Scottish designed Ivatt Class 2MT 2-6-2T was built at Crewe in 1949. It was withdrawn from service at Skipton in 1966 shortly before the depot closed in 1967. It was bought by the KWVR and arrived under its own power in 1967. It is in a none standard crimson livery as at the time it arrived at the KWVR ex BR trains were not allowed to use BR liveries, so this was the colour it was painted for the opening of the KWVR in 1968, later it was painted in authentic BR lined livery. In 2018, for the 50th Anniversary, it was repainted in its crimson livery. Heading back to the engine shed at Haworth at the end of the day. And a short video
  2. Nicely caught John, I see these quite often
  3. Looks nice in blue, that one has a slightly different styling to Union
  4. Thanks Clicker, the train is a A4 Pacific Class designed by Nigel Greseley, 35 were produced between 1935 and 1938 (which was around the end of the Art Deco period). Only 6 survive, one is in Canada as a static display, another is in the USA as a static display, another 60019 Bittern is awaiting overhaul, 60007 Sir Nigel Greseley is undergoing overhaul at the National Railway Museum. The most famous is 6022 Mallard which holds the world record for the fastest steam train at 126mph and is on display at the National Railway Museum.

  8. They are members of the Arcahnid family but not closely related to true spiders, they can also shed their legs... Very nice set by the way Paul.
  9. Thanks Denis. No idea where it got it's name, I've not been able to find any explanation as yet.
