Although the Orient Express makes a welcome weekly break to endless cl377's and still a large number of slammers; the motive power has invariably been a cl67 since I last noted a Battle of Britain class before Christmas 2004. :cry: :cry:

Time at Chilham is about 13.30 on Fridays, and much to my surprise, last Friday the whistle as the train approaching the curve entering Chilham could only have been STEAM! :P :P

Unfortunately, I had only a couple of seconds to get a view. I THINK it was a 'Schools' class, hauling a full rake of C1 coaching stock, all in Southern Railway green. :!: :!:

In the same week, the hum and rattle of Slammers and Cl377 gave way to the whine of a single 4 car Cl455! This has been in regular use all week.
