BR 7P Brittania 70013 Oliver Cromwell

Taking a break from running in on the Great Central Railway BR Standard Brittania class 4-6-2 70013 Oliver Cromwell is at the NRM's 1968 and all that exhibition.
70013 will, in August help to re-enact the last official BR steam hauled train. She was one of the locos in the original on 11th August 1968.
And guess what she was in light steam at York and I blew her whistle, along with a couple of hundred others, mainly more than 50 years younger than me!!
