"We've got a '47' on Saturday, Andrew - are you interested?" Out of the blue I'd received a phone call at work earlier that week from my old friend Nick Harvey. "From EWS?" I asked, aware of some recent history between them and the chaps at Carnforth, which had resulted in the use of Fragonset '31s' on most of his recent trains. "No, somebody called 'Freightliner' - is that good?" he replied. There followed a short pause whilst I considered the impending scenario... "Can I bring a few friends?" I asked. "About 40?"
