Les Auld: Thank you Joan, appreciate the comment.
The what?? Hogwarts Express you mean!! wink
Les Auld: Now that is swearing to a real Gricer Marion, it is considered sacrilegious in some areas to paint a Great Western engine in red for the Hogwarts Express. Thanks for the comment smile
She looks good in black Les. We spent the day at Quorn yesterday for the Mail by Rail gala which also happened to be my birthday.
Les Auld: Happy Birthday for yesterday Brian, I have seen some pictures of the new mail rake and it does look splendid, I hope to see it later in the year. The Duchess would look good at the head of the mail train though.

What great atmosphere. You are fortunate with the no. of steam specials you have in your aree; we get few down here.
Les Auld: I suppose we are Alan, one on Saturday, one on Sunday and two next Wednesday, plenty of train chasing to do. Thanks for the comment.
Oops, well sorry for that, you might have guessed by now that I know 0 about trains. I like the Hogwarts Express though.
Les Auld: Nothing to be sorry for Marion, just was a light hearted reply.
nice capture Les
Les Auld: Thanks for the comment Derek.
