    21st Century Steam

    Faced with the lack of a preserved example of the LNER's last, & probably the UK's best, express steam loco, Peppercorn's A1, what ya gonna do...

    ...build a new one, that's what!

    A bold project by any standards!

    I dunno,

    an apple-green LNER A1 runs through my house regularly...

    I know, I know, they were rarely that clean, but after WW2.... people needed cheering-up...
    and by 1959... some upstarts had bought damn cars. Bloody unions. Here is a late 50s A1 express a few years before the locos were scrapped
