Misspent Youth

When we were young television was just coming to the world, and when most kids would probably have been better off playing with their train sets, our parents took us to play with real steam trains! Although I didn't grow up to be a train spotter I remember fondly my Dad's enthusiasm for these huge beasts that were being tossed assunder in favour of the mighty diesel engine.

My brother Chris has been digging up old photos from Mum and Dad's house, so I am posting this for my kids mainly to show them what we did as kids on the weekend "back in the day"

Of course my parents were proven right; television is the biggest pile of garbage, and this steam train is still going strong....
