Hi all,

Interesting.   The train seems to be comprised mainly of the newer type flat-top tankers (not yet available) with just the odd one of the older style.  Pity!

Itís great news about new traffic to the railway, but a bit of a shame they couldnít have run it all the way around the corner via Peterborough direct to Kings Lynn!

Cheers

Ben A.
