  5. And from the toilet retention tanks onto the track!
  6. Hornby Intercity MkIIe are available for just over £30 Keep any eye out for the Dapol MK2D’s! They scrub up fairly well with a few tweaks!
  7. I was going to post confidently a case of Tyne rescues Tees but my Platform 5 tells me 47402 was Immingham based in 89, although it seems to still bear the Gateshead crest!

I'm lucky enough that I could see the Heritage Line (Darlington to Bishop Auckland) during that period, where my secondary school’s geography classroom was a prime viewing spot (I failed my geography GCSE for some reason!)

Ps -following with interest! -Andy
