Pictures arrived today. Thank you indeed. Great service and superb quality. Just out of interest, the one of dad worked for brel swindon in 81-82 and one lunch time he went into the north yard where 40s were stored prior to scrapping. He painted on the orange blob you see on the nose so every week we drove by it he could say to the family "that was me!". But it's taken me 37 years to identify the loco and find a picture! One copy is for him. Thanks again. Craig, Swindon
