Will revisit - Henry Reed was a poet - thought I had it...

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner!

Ian, loco = short for locomotive, Mallard set the speed record for a steam powered locomotive at 126 mph in 1938!

Gwynn I liked Nightingale!

Thanks all for taking part!

Cheers Chris. Mallard was driving me nuts! Was doing endless anagrams of "train" with LP, EP or SP thrown in (a record that is broken)...!
