Yep, two very lucky young ladies,

They had all of their screwdrivers, spanners, jemmy's and other fettling implements confiscated that day, so they were unable to remove, undo, take off any  items that could fall into their handbag's.

Mind you, that day brought a different meaning to the words - heavy mettle !!

...need a cold shower after that lot Les.

 I am SO jealous.  We have a small steam/railway Museum here in Perth along with a seasonal steam railway run by enthusiasts.

As good as they are I can't imagine what it'd be like to walk among such famous engines as the ones in your pictures.   As kids we used to dream of seeing just of these beasts in the flesh but to have all those on display  in the one place - wow !   ....so jealous indeed.

Really appreciate the pictures Les.

Thanks Les,

Indeed a great day and defiantly a new meaning to Heavy Metal. I was there on the Saturday and got there early, it was packed. It was like being on a football terrace.

Cheers

When were these taken, Shildon is only a couple of miles from me, I hadn't heard of the gathering

Fantastic pics Les, Mark, its a great place to visit, and id recommend it to anyone that has the slightest interest in steam, locos, or indeed history For example Les behind the hopper wagon in one of your photos of that foot bridge is one of the original line crossings of the first mainline railway The Stockton to Darlington railway, where the rainhill trails first took place, and Stephenson's rocket.......never mind you know
