Hello 1971_M5,

Back in the 1910s The Caledonian Railway organised a day trip to Carlisle for about 2000 employees and their families.

A publicity photograph showed J F Macintosh with fourteen of his celebrated DUNALASTAIR class in a siding at Carlisle.

Your image immediately brought the Caledonian Railway's staff treat to mind, Alistair.

Thanks for the reply, Sir!

DunALASTAIR

Alistair...

Close! But probably no relation?

Interesting... GREAT history:

Thanks for mentioning this.  I am always interested in these things.  Plus, what a wonderful corporate gesture... taking 2000 employees and their families for a day trip on the train.
