i will of course keep people update due to flooding


Heavy rain has caused the partial closure of the West Coast mainline after flooding between England and Scotland.

Network Rail said water levels were about a foot above the northbound track between Penrith North Lakes and Lockerbie, resulting in its closure.. bbc.co.uk

Thanks, Chris, but Britannia is becoming too regular and I'd like to see something else.
On the subject of 'Leander' in the Blackpool run here's a decent vid from 2015 of the Dalesman....
