And it's a return to Harringay station after an eight year break for 'Sir Nigel Gresley' an A4 streamlined engine. For most of that time it has been going through an extensive overhaul, and it returns not in the dark blue livery seen last time but in wartime plain black livery bearing its old number of 4498. There's another chance to see it on Friday 2 December at about 1015 (time may change).
The following day, Saturday 3 Dec sees a return for 'Duchess of Sutherland' (the red engine, strictly LMS crimson lake) about 0900.
The final steam excursion of the year should be with 'Mayflower' (the apple green engine) on Friday 9 Dec at Harringay GREEN LANES about 0820, though the operator has form for substituting a diesel at a few days notice.
Time confirmed, late in the day:
Thanks for this Gordon.
