YOU report on December 7 that “An historic train has come home to Yorkshire...”, that it is a “...sister train to record-breaker Mallard” and that “The train is currently being restored...”
I would point out that the A4 Class locomotive Dwight D Eisenhower is NOT a train, it is a locomotive. The two terms are not interchangeable.
A train is what a locomotive hauls, which even had to be pointed out to the BBC PM programme last Friday. Please try to get them right.
