Live from National Railway Museum

On Saturday 22nd February, Auckland Hospital Radio broadcast live from Locomotion (NRM) in Shildon. The programme was broadcast from midday as we covered the Mallard 75 event.

The Great Goodbye is the last time that all six A4 locomotives will come together before the transatlantics return to their home museums.

It was an unmissable programme for railway enthusiasts and those interested in local history and will be repeated very soon on AHR.
