The real thing, as I remember from my school-days
Bill Phillips: Not the prettiest GWR locomotive but very functional
A day can make all the difference in the world, Bill, as we all know. smile And look at that train from 1918, a hundred years ago!
Bill Phillips: It can indeed. Tomorrow in 1980 we went from one child to two grin

It means nothing to me Bill, only having to remember to write 2019 on things.
Bill Phillips: I don't have much interest in new year's eve. New year's day is much more significant in our family

Oh, a very large, proud 'She', she could lead Britain in a good or better future!
Bill Phillips: She could have done had we realised in 1918 that the world had changed

100 year old and still "smoking", Bill.
I think it has enough steam to make it into 2019. Happy New Year to you and Angela and family.
Bill Phillips: Got a few years left in her yet!

Thank you and the same to you. Lots of fun as a grandparent in 2019

In the blink of an eye
the year's at an end.
Not just around the bend,
can 2019 also fly?

Many such great pictures to you, in the coming year.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Louis. I have, as always, enjoyed both your pictures and comments in 2018

I take one day at the time … and just check the obituary columns.
Bill Phillips: Live in the moment comrade. I hope 2019 will bring you all that is good
I'm not sure I've seen one of these before, a very powerful looking engine.
Bill Phillips: I don't suppose they came up your way Brian
Fine shot... time's inexorable march... Sorry to bring you down... smile
Bill Phillips: It is like birthdays. You don't suddenly become a year older...just a day older

Why people feel that a change of year could mean a change of fortune is beyond me. Different days, same old cr*p as they say. I feel sorry for the extra burden placed on our emergency services tonight.

A fine photo, by the way. It looks as though this was taken during its working life. I've leant that this was purchased for £5775 in May 1974 from Woodham's.
Bill Phillips: I have no idea although some years are totally cr*p and sometimes you think that maybe it will change with the change of the year. Misguided optimism perhaps.

That was my intention so I am pleased you think so
Simmering.....Happy New Year Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thanks Martin. The same to you.
I recall these going past the garden gate smile
Bill Phillips: That must have been a bit noisy!
