And now for something a bit different a video about Steam Engines. - When I was a lad ( a very long time ago) I used to belong to the schoolboys Train watchers club. - We had small books with all the engines operating in the UK at that time listed.  What we did, was spend hours at a local Train station  - and wait for the trains to pass. - Then we would note the name of the engine and number, which would then be underlined in our book as being “Seen”

I know that I became quite friendly with the guys who operated the Signal box at the Whittington station near Oswestry - I was able to spend time up in the box and even got to be shown how to pull the levers that operated the signals for the trains..


Yesterday I drove up to Magna Bay to deliver Ross Rathbone his new Beta Factory Evo  - I quite enjoyed the drive via the back road to Salmon Arm  - I saw a gaggle of white Snow Geese flying low over the fields  a  very nice  sight.
