I tried to post earlier, but a glitch had the lot!
Back in the eighties, there were a few passenger trains and at least one goods (Freight) working rescued by a preserved steam loco, when the modern traction had failed. Good to see Tornado doing her stuff again.
I think soft Southern trains is a little harsh though, soft Southern electrics maybe! Would you argue with a Southern Railway Z Class?(3 cylinder 0-8-0T) Barking up the bank to Exeter Central(Now thats a climb!!)?
