When the Boat comes in…

A new arrival at York yesterday was the Ffestiniog Railway's "Spooner's Boat". 

The Spooner’s Boat will be on display in the Great Hall over Easter.

I cannot do better than this cracking bit of film: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jP7uTC6FIc

In the background you may just see our Class 47 diesel, 47 798, which was ticking over having become a runner again after its failure a few weeks ago. It is the intention to loan the loco to the Wensleydale Railway over 1-3 May weekend – a busy time with Tornado visiting Shildon too!
