2019 Bucket List Sorted!

Well that's my 2019 bucket list sorted, or way or another!


(Photograph cribbed from A1 Steam Trust website)

Unfortunately it seems Tornado won't be able to cross the Tay Bridge owing to the condition of that structure.

More details here.

What are your plans for 2019?

Re: 2019 Bucket List Sorted!

I finally crossed the Forth Bridge in 2017 when staying in Edinburgh, just a quick day return to North Queensferry station by Sprinter rather than steam, though my view is that once you're on the train it doesn't matter much what's pulling it . North Queensferry is actually quite an interesting little place and has what is allegedly the smallest lighthouse in the world.



E-M5 mkI, mZuiko 9-18 mm.

It still works too, apparently, and is regularly open to visitors.

Why is Tornado prohibited from the Tay Bridge Nigel? Too heavy? I guess they don't want to take any chances given the fate of the last bridge ...!

So what’s actually on the bucket list? Travel behind Tornado or behind Tornado over the Forth Bridge or what other combination?
