Right! And the main difference between men and boys, is the price of their toys!
Thanks for the links.

Thanks Maurice. You are a master of the under-statement. I'm lucky if I get a shot like this every decade! ;-)

Cracking image Neil. I know you mentioned that these engines commonly run double- headed, but it's not something I've ever seen before!

Well done on getting "Explored". You're becoming a regular feature on there.

Many thanks, Keith.
Chichester is unlikely to see double-headed steam locos in the near future. Most of the larger Heritage Railways will run the occasional d-h to provide photo opportunities, but on the Settle & Carlisle railway it is more of a practical thing, to get the trains up and over the Cumbrian mountains.

Great broadsides shot Neil. Good to know that this combination is still running on the main line nearly 35 years later.
