Thanks Michael,
What a lovely looking loco Russell was/is. So much nicer than the photos I've seen of him after the Festiniog desecrated him.

Off course I talk to myself, sometimes, you just HAVE to get an expert opinion.

Last weekend in the top left hand corner of Wales the Welsh Highland Railway Ltd, trading as the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway relaunched the Hunslet 2-6-2 'Russell' into traffic.
