Bank Holiday at the Heritage Centre
A rare site over at the Heritage Centre with the Giants of Steam visiting Crewe. The public display of the newly restored ‘Royal Scot' alongside ‘Duchess of Sutherland' and ‘Princess Elizabeth' means that for the first time since 1962 fully operational examples of each of these legendry classes of the steam age have been seen together.
It was a good day out but not as many people there as I would expect considering the attractions but there were a lot of old boiler makers talking about he old day when my Grandfather Joe Barnshaw was a boilermaker.
It takes you back to the good old days when I was a child and used to go and watch the old steam trains every week.
