    No I do not currently volunteer
    I'd booked to ride behind Tornado on the 30th, so this is a lovely bonus.

    It's tempting to get all fanciful, but if 60009 is still around after the March Steam Gala, imagine it working the other steam diagram of the day, and having an A1, A3 and A4 all in the same station on the same day.

    (they probably wouldn't, though. My money's on the Crab to make the most of the Paddington connection)

    Will have to try and get over to the ELR. Haven't seen Scotsman since it returned to service. Thanks for putting up the dates.
