Thanks for the info @amazon, here's the link http://www.railwaytouring.net/uk-day-trips/the-east-yorkshireman
I'll be tempted to go and wave to it from the Bridge in "Railway Children" style, like I used to when I was a toddler.

I wonder if the local primary schools know about this? To hell with the National Curriculum, this is something the little 'uns should see at least once in their lives.
