  1. Some extra pics taken this morning of the Austerity saddle tank “Welsh Guardsman”. Cheers, Ade.
  2. Thanks for the link. Nice to have the info on the carriages. Cheers, Ade.
  3. Thanks Adrian. Here are a few more pics. The brown carriage has this green livery on this side.
  4. Hi Russ, all our train was made up of 6 wheelers. Did not get close enough to see what was under the Mark I’d. They was a pile of Gresley pattern bogies in one of the yards. Cheers, Ade.
  5. Got it on the way back. This take will be on duty tomorrow for Father’s Day specials.
  6. Sitting at the pub I just missed a train going past of blood & custard MkI’s with Queen Victoria’s carriage at the rear.
  7. My pleasure. The ride was not bad at all. Made a big difference from the usual BR MkI’s at most preserved lines.
  8. So another great day out. The rare rolling stock was a real treat. Will certainly come back again as I would ride in the electric auto car. I have seen this at Warley the other year. Today I think it was under wraps in the carriage shed. Well worth a visit, so recommended. I will upload Lez’s photos later. Cheers, Ade.
  9. As the whole train was considered first class due to it being made of of the pre grouping stock, you could sit where you wanted. We bagged the guards compartment.
  10. We were booked on the 1.30 pm train, so this gave us chance to photo the train before it departed on the 12.00pm. We then sat on the station having a cup of tea while we waited for our train. The weather was superb and with the station deserted it really felt like you had stepped back in time to the days of a sleepy branch line.
  11. We arrived at the station early so we could have a look around.
  12. Hi Guys, staying in the van just two doors down from Embsay station. Perfect location. We arrived last night and booked first class tickets to travel in the pre grouping carriages.
  13. Had a brilliant day on the E&BA railway. Will start a new thread in the Preservation forum. Weather was very nice. Back now at the pub with a pint in hand. Cheers, Ade.
  14. Thanks Nick. Sitting outside having breakfast as the weather (at the moment) is fine but overcast. Got first class tickets booked for the 1.30pm train. Looking forward to seeing some of the pre grouping rolling stock they have. Cheers, Ade.
