hello to everyone, first time poster on the site, was a train spotter in my youth and drifted away from it although took my children to many preserved railways and model railway exhibitions when they were growing up. Children have left home and my wife and I have more time on our hands hence my return to train enthusing. I find standing on stations spotting so relaxing and recommend it to anyone with hypertension. I still work full time but try to fit in a trainspotting trip at least once a month. grew up with diesels so whilst I have an affection for steam, diesels are what excite me especially Deltics, have happy memoires of standing on York station and hearing the rumbling of Deltic heading towards York station from the south before you could see it

Hello Wildheart, from a fellow Deltic buff! I know just what you mean about York. Hopefully we'll see a lot of railtours bringing back all these wonderful memories and keeping them alive.
