It's many a year since
I heard the syncopation of a double-header. As a kid I spent
many a Summer Saturday a few miles up the WCML at Hartford from
where I watched double-headers start off from the station. The
one I remember best was piloted by 46100 "Royal Scot"
which is soon to be released back onto the main line. The imminent
arrival of a "stopper" would be announced by the ringing
of a hand bell from the signal box. Happy days... 26/04/2008
