While I was in Bath – while I was wandering down the hill to the train station in fact – a steam train came through. They are lovely beasts etc. This one was, I guess, 30s or maybe 50s. The Sir Nigel summat and it looked all streamlined ‘n’ stuff like the Mallard etc.
However, I was disgusted at this display of modernity. For it was an LNER engine, in LNER livery. Which is something you’d not have seen back in the proper days, before 1892.
