2509 Silver Link

It will very soon be 'Mallard 75' at the National Railway Museum. However one era of the LNER A4 operation won't be represented, that of the original Silver Jubilee service. None of the original four locomotives has survived but 4464/60019 Bittern did wear the original livery for a time in preservation, numbered as 2509 Silver Link.

This photo is from a visit to the NRM in 1988, and the little peson by the front buffer is, indeed, me!
