If Jinty begins with a capital letter, then it's a proper noun.

Agreed!

At the risk of hijacking the thread:
"A common noun refers to a class of entity (e.g. dog), whereas a proper noun refers to an individual entity (e.g. John or Kennedy) or a collection of entities (e.g. Hebrides). Proper nouns are normally invariant for number: most are singular, but a few, referring for instance to mountain ranges or groups of islands, are plural (e.g. Hebrides). Typically, English proper nouns are not preceded by an article (the or a) or other determiners (not, for instance, a John, the Kennedy, or many Hebrides). "

When I photographed the Jubilee sequence I ended it with the shot of the loco coupled up to its train (post #1168) but I thought perhaps we should see it on its way. Which really means getting a shot of it in the short cutting between the road bridge and the tunnel portal. There's no way of getting the camera into a good position if it's on the tripod so this pic is a hand-held quarter second exposure with the camera braced against the back-, or rather side-, scene.

Again, another superb photo. You have a much steadier hand than I do.

A really impresive set of trees.  I like the way that the roots can be used to stabilise the trunks.
With kind regards

I had a couple of locos weathered by TMC  a few years back. They looked great. but I've found that the weathering has rubbed off over time as they did not seal it.

Was your 2MT weathering sealed?

Cheers
Dave

I'm not normally a steam guy but something about the overall look has got me seriously thinking of ordering one myself :beers:

Jealous of your tree's they look absolutely cracking

EDIT: Done a little read up & seems perfect for my layout set in Wales, Thanks for posting :beers:

Little information on 46521

British Railways
The locomotive was built at Swindon and completed on 19th February, 1953 at a cost of 13,756 and was initially allocated to Owestry. It spent almost its entire working life in Wales, but was transferred the London Midland Region for maintenance on 7th July, 1962. She subsequently had Heavy Maintenance repairs at Crewe between 30th April and 1st June, 1963 probably because the locomotive was earmarked  for Royal Train duties in August 1963, when the Queen visited North Wales for three days. Its duties were positioning moves and overnight steam heating of the Royal Train stock.

She was withdrawn by LMR on 29th October, 1966 and arrived at Barry scrapyard in March, 1967, unusually still retaining its original boiler.
