Rain! Don't talk to me
about rain....we went to ride down the Valley to find that the
duty steam engine, 68030, had failed with a hot bearing and the
service was diesel hauled. As I waited under the canopy the Class
20, D8154, crept round the bend towards the station in monsoon
weather. I had never ridden behind the 20 so this was to be a
first but, of course, the return service from Froghall does not
stop at Cheddleton so we had to wait a while longer.
