And so we bid farewell to
two coastline friends, 37401 "Mary Queen of Scots"
and 37426 have, as expected, been transferred North to Scotland
after their stint on the North wales runs. This was my last sighting
of 426 in proud guise as it entered Crewe's platform 12 on 21st
December 2000 with 1G96, the 8.47 Holyhead-Birmingham.
