You don’t get these wonderful old engines into pristine condition without a lot of hard work. This involves a lot of dirty rags and emery paper too

I appreciate all their hard work and dirty rags, Bill.
Bill Phillips: There is something about a good dirty rag

Well done: that's the real guts of the business as I remember it - complete with its very own collection of sights, sounds and smells
Bill Phillips: It must be very satisfying to get involved in helping to restore both the engines and the rolling stock.

Bill Phillips: One engine that has recently been finished took 22 years to restore!!!
Nice atmospheric shot Bill.

Yes, that's hard work as we can imagine by your interesting picture - but those old machines, all those 'she's', are in a better condition than we human beans who cannot totally be restored like them (except a hip, some teeth...) when the glamour is gone! Thanks for your good wishes (Astrid & Ginnie sent an e- card from Bergen, they are very well!)
Bill Phillips: Pleased to hear Astrid and Ginnie are well and no doubt enjoying their holiday. I hope you have had a good day today.
...and no doubt a wife do to the washing - or are they all "new men"?
Bill Phillips: I can't see them being new men somehow Tom

magnifique cette composition
Bill Phillips: Merci beaucoup mon ami
This is a great shot just on its own, Bill. Learning what all those dirty rags are actually used for is an added bonus.
Bill Phillips: Thanks very much Beverly
