First public steaming set for Baldwin 778

History will be made on Sunday 19th August, when the newly restored steam engine No 778—built in the USA 90 years ago for use on the supply lines to the First World War trenches—hauls public passenger trains for the first time. It will be almost 60 years to the day since the last public passenger run of this type in Britain.
