45 mins on a cold, draughty platform has never gone so fast. The anecdotes were in full flow and our patience was rewarded with 47810 leading a first class coach, a standard class coach, a driving trailer unit and 47841 on the rear. We sat in 1st class, obviously, as only befits distinguished bloggers, and a short but sweet journey to Yarmouth for more photos and a video. Then it was back on the gas bus to Wangford and mini bus home.
Roy - thank you for your company on what turned out to be a great afternoon. I won't be getting out much for the next couple of weeks thanks to the limit on the number of minibus bookings I'm allowed being taken up by essential things, and eye surgery. However the eye surgery means two days in London so get ready for much Borismastering! So here are today's pics - more on Flickr over the weekend.
