T'was a still, cold morning.....
.. the Yorkshire Dales, the rain had passed in the early morning, the mist was cloudung the hills around and the wind had dropped completely. The locomotives of the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway were being fired up and the visiting steam traction engines were pouring out smoke. all adding to the misty, smokey atmosphere.
Standing in front of the coaling stage at Embsay station was Lady Fiona, a 1922 built steam wagon by Aveling & Porter, strangely enough for the Yorkshire Dales the livery was that of an Australian Outback Haulage company.
