Has an 'H0/00' gauge driver somehow managed to get on to the footplate of one of the Table-Top Railway's Union Mills locomotives?

Toodle-pip.

The Table-Top Railway is a train set trying and failing to be a model railway.

I believe that train sets and model railways are fun.

A True Princess

I think I first met her here in 1973 and it was lovely to become re-acquainted with Princess at Haverthwaite.  We had a gorgeous run to Lakeside and back in the spring sunshine with primroses blooming.  Mrs Train Waiting and I travel on the L&HR a couple of times most years, but Princess had been shy - until now:-
 

[Princess and her train waiting to depart Haverthwaite.]  Perhaps it's a bit overlooked by enthusiasts nowadays, but I always enjoy the L&HR.

Thank you for looking.

Best wishes.

John

PS Princess is Bagnall 2682/1942.  16" x 24" cylinders and 3'6" wheels.  She went to Preston docks and then to Haverthwaite in 1973 via the Lytham Creek Motive Power Museum.

Thank you, Mike.  If you are on the train, the East side (beside the lake at Lakeside and the station buildings at Haverthwaite) gives the best views.  Between Haverthwaite and Newby Bridge Halt the line has a long right-hand curve which is a good place to see the engine working from the train.  There are excellent connections with the 'steamers' at Lakeside.  These go to Bowness and Waterhead (for Ambleside).  Swan and Teal are LMS vessels but the lovely old Tern goes back to the days of the Furness Railway.

If you are line-siding, around Newby Bridge Halt is very nice and has good access from public roads.

I hope you have a lovely time.

All the very best.
