Hi Glencairn,

As always a hive of activity and colour.......but is there a reliability issue with your Westerns as they always seem to be stabled at the depot - lets get that Hydraulic fluid moving around - LOL

Keep up the posts as I for one enjoy the numerous cameo's that you have around every corner

Cheers - Richard.

Thank you for your kind comments, Richard. They are much appreciated. As for reliability of the Westerns? All okay. :D
Leeds Central Station was a terminus station and was a changing point for locomotives. Crown Point Yard is a refuelling point before the locomotives next turn of duty. Modeller's licence I have Westerns on Liverpool to Leeds services plus on the Swansea to Leeds service (which was a real one).
Having thirteen Westerns there is always at least one at Crown Point. 8-)

Thank you (once again), Chops.

I hope they strike a deal. They have been there a few years 'negotiating'. :lol: :lol: :lol:
