On the 1.83 mile DMU ride a TTI with much gold braid claimed my Anglia Day Ranger "wasnt valid South of Audley End". On getting out the rover map which showed Newport the

Southern boundary he was withered, arrogantly stating the "maps wrong". So the humble basher outwits a TTI!!

A good day on an "Anglian Day Ranger" with winners in 31412, 37036, 47016 and 47135. A good bit of steam heat mileage too, especially behind them growling, snarling 37's!
