PLANDAMPF ON THE LONG DRAG.

How else can I introduce DB Cargo UK's promotion of its support services for steam trains?  "DB Cargo UK has provided the crew for some of the world’s most famous steam locomotives including the Flying Scotsman, and Tornado."  They, and one other company, do for British train enthusiasts what Union Pacific do Stateside, where the locomotives might be as famous, and surely bigger (a Northern, a Challenger, and soon a Big Boy.)  844.  3985.  4014.

But the ironies: a German operating company bragging on steam excursions running on Brunel's Billiard Table and the other famous cross-country routes.  Will we see a Merchant Navy plated Sir Winston Churchill in steam?
