Just seen from the roof room The Waverley heading south through Settle station, steam hauled, with diesel assistance. Very gloomy and raining heavily yet no wind at all - we are right at the centre of former hurricane Bertha. The weather station, normally an objectively boring screen of data is showing "It's raining cats and dogs" along the bottom of its display.
The table lamps in The Waverley's dining carriages pierced this gloom - as did the locomotive's wailing whistle on approach to Settle. What atmosphere.
