Great stuff, John!
I've not seen red lamps before though. Is there a story behind them?

Ha, Ha I hadn't spotted that!!
They arrived backwards and, if I remember correctly, this is a few minutes later and they are just setting off again. The steam certainly suggests that and it would then appear that they have forgotten something!!!!
Good spot Peter.

Thanks Mike, we actually rode behind her during the last day of the gala.
We had also ridden with her from Paington to Kingswear when celebrating the 100th anniversary of her clocking 100mph... or did she?
