The final vista that opened up to us was "Green Arrow" alongside "Tornado", a fine pairing of two apple green East Coast main line locomotives.
Just before we lost the sun, there was a photo call for the A1 support crew, including Richard Pearson on the extreme left and fellow Talyllyn footplate voulnteer Bob Morland on the far right.
A better chance to take pictures like this and maybe have an A1, K1 and V2 line up will be next weekend at Shildon, hence the title of this blog entry - this is only a taste, let's hope the sun shines on 1st, 2nd & 3rd May - and admission is FREE! There is a small charge for cab access to the A1 and our site train rides. See you there?
