Waldenburg, not Wallander*

Yet more engines. My friend also has this one. When I was a boy I liked sitting on the ‘carriages’ of trains like this. Last weekend I got quite a kick out of driving one – this one, Waldenburg (the original is here). It can be seen at the Stafford Showground and it is steam, of course. Real steam, with the sounds and the smells.

Not me in the photo. I didn’t have a hat, remember?

Must get back to my writing… too many engines lately. Or perhaps not. We all need a break.
