I saw it! I stood at the end of my street, in Scarborough, to see it go by.

However:
-Hard this project seems to get,
-many calls one makes to ERYC and other authorities
-many folk both local and distant say it can't be done
...just think maybe if we all pull our weight and make steady but sure progress....one day Tornado will stand in Sledmere & Fimber station, even will a royal passenger, to relive those '48 days of the royal visit
