Following their get-together at the NRM in York’s Great Gathering last year, Mallard, Sir Nigel Gresley, Dwight D Eisenhower, Union Of South Africa, Dominion Of Canada and Bittern are now at Shildon for the Great Goodbye, which runs from today until Sunday, February 23.

After that all six A4 engines will return to their home museums.
