Letters to the Editor
David Collins advises corrections to the picture captions on pages 12 and 13 of qn 101. My error in incorrectly interpreting the material provided to me in the usual last minute rush to get it to the printers - thanks David.
One thing I should point out is that Mr Randall's photograph of L.99 on page 13 is incorrectly captioned as Steam on the Met 1993. The 1962 tube stock train on the right clearly identifies the location as Ealing Broadway, thus the photo must have been taken during the Steam on the District Line event, which took place the weekend after the Met Line event in 1993. On this weekend, L.99 hauled trains between Ealing Broadway and High Street Kensington in company with L.90 (7760) from Tyseley and Sarah Siddons.
Also, on the preceding page the upper photograph of Met 1 and 9466 at Amersham is captioned to be the 1999 event. Although both locos were present that year, Met 1 was on static display in the bay platform at Rickmansworth along with one of the Bluebell Railway's Ashbury Chesham coaches. So I would suggest the photograph might have been taken during the 1990 event when the two locos operated along with BR Standard 4 tank 80079 from the Midland Railway Centre.
Once again, well done on producing a brilliant magazine. I trust that the 40th anniversary events at BRC will be a success.
Dear Mr Jackson,
