The Great Northern Railway is a preserved railway run by volunteers. It was operating the steam locomotive “Leicester City” when the Hash visited. This locomotive was one of the last built in Britain and is 60 years old.

When BOF started to tell Organgrinder the detailed history of this locomotive something snapped; her sanity.

A pint of local beer cheered her up however.

The Walking Mini were able to ride in this old bus as well as go on board the railway engine.

However they perked up when Sandy arrived with a bottle of wine...
