Steam Special. 09.09.19 in SHEFFIELD HISTORY CHAT Posted Thursday at 11:36 1 hour ago, Paul Worrall said: For all the steam buffs out there, on Saturday morning the Yorkshire Man is running along the Hope Valley line. Can't call myself a steam buff but I would love to see a film, if anyone gets one, of it passing through the Sheffield area . I did travel all over Britain on the railways when we still had steam engines and it was the easiest and most relaxing form of transport for very short or very long journeys. I am not overly fond of the modern railways, the last time I was on a train I found the seat uncomfortable and could hardly get my legs under the table even though I had paid what I considered a very high price for the ticket.
