An astonishing level of interest in today's steam renaissance was shown by the general public, as well as enthusiasts, during a  trip on 22.9.01, between Bath & Bristol behind rebuilt "Merchant Navy" class 35005 "Canadian Pacific", courtesy of "Steam Dreams".  35005 Canadian Pacific Bristol TM - 22-9-01
