The Perfect Post

The first steam locomotive built in Britain in 40 years made it's maiden run the other day.

The story can be found here in a video news clip. As someone in another forum pointed out, it sets a record for including the most things in one story that delight me: steam locomotives, regional accents, British history, traditional costumes (don't blink or you'll miss 'em), and the train is met at Newcastle by a group playing Northumbrian small pipes.
