That's very kind of you, Sir. Here are a few more - Most of them were slightly off but it'd been a while since I'd used the camera (A 1950s Haline Paulette Electric, if anyone cares) and it shows. I also took some shots just to the West of West Kensington, but that part of the film has been harder to scan because for some reason the shots are too close together and the negative scanner doesn't like it!

A lot of these suffered from camera-shake, mostly because they were rushed so I didn't set the camera up properly.

I reckon the West Kensington shots (the ones that are yet to be scanned) came out the best, but I shall only really find out once I've printed them.

Sarah Siddons heritage train on 7 & 8 September

Info from www.ltmuseum.co.uk/whats-on/heritage-vehicles-outings

Seems these will be cl. 20 + No. 12 + 4TC + cl. 20. Seems fairly pointless having SS on the train if that's the case.

The Sarah Siddons trains in the past have been Sarah at one end and a 20 or two at the other end. I haven't seen anything to suggest that these trains will be any different.

There's a post on a Met line Facebook group with the timings. States at the top it'll be a class 20 at each end with 12 and 4-TC in the middle.
