    Just watched Carol's segments on i-player ..... No way I was getting up that early !

    Nice to hear about my favoured "Shieldhall Model" of operation being mentioned !

    Coincidentally, on Saurday I was first out in the raffle draw at our PSPS meeting and you get the choice of the branch's spare second hand books. I've got all the paddle steamer ones that there were - and there can't be that many I don't have in any case ! - so it was a lovely book about Shieldhall which I got

    I had had my eye on it for a while .... although last time I won I picked up a Turbine Steamer book. I had resisted buying the Shieldhall book when Graham MacKenzie came to talk to us a few years ago - but now I have his self-penned master work for a bit of bed time reading

    An interesting book - short enough and written in an informal style which makes it very readable. Lots of pictures too

    Unfortunately it only goes up to 2004, so the problems associated with the last 15 years of operation are not covered

    It does appear to play down the difficulties that were faced in preservation which I am sure were legion, but what it does demonstrate is that the "Shieldhall Model" can operate in the UK if absolutely necessary
