No obligation to use the attached image. I meant to send it before Xmas having seen JC's shot of North Pole Halt at Yeovil. This image has nothing to do with the CRS site really but it does depict the 'real' North Pole. The caption that I use is as follows ..........
H.P. Bulmer Ltd.: Return to Steam Stage 3 on 7/10/71.
Both the legs of this major event in our calendars were shrouded in mist at the London end as is evident in this shot of preserved GWR Collett no. 6000 King George V as it passes the long-disappeared North Pole Jct. signal box in the early stages of its journey from Kensington Olympia to Swindon.
Best wishes, Mike.
Many thanks for that Mike - it's such a marvellous picture that I thought acceptable to use it - after it is Western Region. We look forward to more from Mike soon.

Interesting to see RW pics at penzance of the 26 December 1976.
I photographed 1013 pn the 0920 pd - Pz relief service at Liskeard on the 24th December , it had replaced 47024 at Plymouth. It looks like 1013 stayed at Penzance for Christmas then.
Now over 40 years ago .
