A few steam specials all in one place made a weekend that couldn't really be missed. Firstly, a visit to Hampshire to catch some Southern steam and then up north for some LMS Steam, quite a day with some proper traction thrown in too!

Then the next day Bullied Tangmere past the front door with a special to and from Scarcorough.
