The age of the train

Our local rail service is occassionally served by an old diesel in British Racing Green with the old British Railways Board livery. And very sweet it looks, too. The first time it turned up I almost missed my train because I thought it was a special excursion.

Imagine my complete lack of surprise when I went over to Manchester to do some shopping and found our train stuck at signals at Castlefield while Stevenson's Locomotion left the old Liverpool Road Station.
