Hi all, just a quick query.

Does anyone know of a decent ale pub within walking distance of the Nene Valley Railway ?

Are you by any chance going there this coming Saturday 12 May on the HDL special charter railtour train? I am all being well going on that trip, should be interesting.

Many thanks for the recommendations.

I shall peruse and choose.

I certainly will (all being well). The thumper can get up to a pretty decent speed on the ECML.

Yes, I hope it can get a good fast run going up, just hope they don't put it behind a stopping local service. We seem to have quite along time now at Wansford.

I thought you were only there for an hour. I'll wave as you go by ferry meadows as I'm on duty there hopefully.

I think we get to Wansford at 1330 and leave at 1615. Hope there is a steam service with European Coaching Stock operating at NVR today.

It is steam, but with the mk1s. The TPO set is also out at some stage. Locos are the 4f and the standard 5.

Here it is on the way (and on the way back) going through South London yesterday...

That really is some lovely footage with the very evocative South London skyline.

It was a splendid day out, and I was very impressed with the brewery tap. Were I a Peterboroughian (if that's the right word !) I suspect I would frequent it quite regularly :)

That is a good clip on you tube of the HDL 1001 on Saturday. It was a good day out, the two large steam locos that were in service on the NVR were magnificent.:D
