A warning folks ! Make sure you have the time to hang around. Steam specials are notorious for not running on time.

That LMS Jubille Class ' Leander ' was at one time allocated to the Millhouses loco shed

The steam loco won't be coming back to Sheffield on the return journey, it's replaced by a diesel at Milford loop, near York. So the morning will be the only opportunity to see the steam.

Quite right.

I went on it when the day trip was last run in 2019, and should be again tomorrow.

Sad to say, I've had to pull out at the last minute, so no refund.

The weather stayed nice for it. Got some great photos and phone-film. Youngest granddaughter was overawed by the noise and size. Great to see her excited face.

Yes, my beloved still boarded - said it was a perfect day out.

The plan had been to get to the coast if the weather was OK (unlike 2019, when it was like a winter's day!) or York if not so clever.

Shame I had to pull out - turned out an expensive day, but these things happen.

Yep. Appreciate the nod if any more appearances are on the horizon.

I'm looking forward to when they start running the Tuesday night 'music' trains again. Seems so long since the last one.
