Two pictures showing the 48xx 0-4-2 tank with a re-painted BR liveried auto coach. Andy Knott kindly gave me the coach which I have now put into service. The two together make a surprisingly long train.

This scene reminds me of when I was a lad and I came back from St Albans to Watford Junction one Sunday evening in the cab of a Stanier 0-4-4 tank no 41908 with the fireman. My dad was with the driver in the auto coach. It was odd to see the regulator moving all on its own. Happy days.
