Very impressive locomotive. Did you take a ride??
Bill Phillips: We did indeed. I won a competition on the Severn Valley website with a picture and got a free pass until next August! So Ange and I will try and get a few trips in!

And I thought the Great West, was full of cowboys and horses. The shiny metal translates beautiful.
Bill Phillips: Not this Great Western. If only they had kept Brunel's 7ft gauge

A great machine - a big lady which may seduce and fascinate many a man like Chris, Brian, Alan and yourself!
Bill Phillips: She's a fine lady Philine. Ange likes them too but then her grandfather was an engine driver!
Nice....

A workhorse of the GWR. It has a huge cylinder in relation to its overall size.
Bill Phillips: There was a fair old bit of power in these things
Fine looking engine Bill, isn't this what is called a large Prairie?
Bill Phillips: It is indeed Brian

A good bit of 'stuff' Billiam
Bill Phillips: I rather like tank engines
A delightful timeless image Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thanks Richard. The original design dates back to the late 1920
My favourite type of train.
Bill Phillips: You can't beat a good tank engine
Congratulations on winning such a prize, Bill. It's lovely in b&w but I would so love to see it in colour.
Bill Phillips: She is sort of in colour tomorrow Pauline
