Peter's Birthday at GEC...

Hi guys. It was a very warm day today, especially for driving steamers: oh well! Fresh from my holiday last week, I had been invited to drive the red Romulus "James" at the GEC. My friend James (owner of "James") had booked his son Peter's 3rd Birthday Party and so required help with the engine during the afternoon. Eddie also attended with the blue Wren 0-4-0, which has now been affectionately dubbed "Willy". The large Bagnall look-a-like ("Luna") also attended to create a three-steamer service. The Romulus was in steam first and myself and James took turns driving his cracking locomotive. Its a very pleasant day at GEC (every time you go!) riding up and down the field aboard "James" with a cuppa' on the tender. After a very pleasant afternoon we returned the loco to the steaming bays ready to blow down. It had been a brilliant day. Happy Birthday Peter. Cheers guys - Best Regards, Sam...
