3117 - Inaugural Train - Scenes before departure

Post by Kevin Wilson-Smith »

Courtesy of Chris Janisch, who says.....

3117 and crew ready themselves before pulling into the station to break the ribbon, to much applause and cheering. Robert Dadford then smashes the champagne to christen our new loco, and does a good job of it! It is all to much for guard Trainman Berelowitz who takes a rest in the shop railway chair. 3117 received admiring glances as she stands at the head of the train
