Young Alfie took JJ for a ride on THE SHAKESPEARE EXPRESS
between Birmingham SH and Stratford-upon-Avon
which runs on Sundays in the summer and posted me this picture. It was being hauled by 4-6-0 Hall Class 4965 Rood Ashton Hall. Not only is it one I have not
seen but I have dipped on it twice and he was also allowed on the footplate., You have well
and truly gripped me off young man.
