I'm waiting with baited breath , 'cause Braemar sings to me of the Braemar bridge  and I'm a railway nutter  ;) ;)

Hi Terry
Started on the railways back in 1953 left in 1964 due to the axe man Beaching, :'( started on steam and ended up as a engine tester "Diesels" and then moved to a MPD Kipps at the end Mainly steam and a very old shed with plenty of the loco's over 80 years old but still going strong before going to the scrap yards. the last class of Mainline i worked on was the Clan class loco's and it broke my heart to see them scrapped so young in life. :o :o :o
