Dave the Gnome BS: Resurrection of a Big Boy 4-8-8-4 locomotive (51* d) RE: BS: Resurrection of a Big Boy 4-8-8-4 locomotive 08 May 19


It's a fascinating place, Joe. We used to live about 4 or 5 miles away. Nearer 50 now but if you are ever in the area I would be happy to take you.

Quite poignant about the Bayet-Garratt. Originally made in Manchester and brought home after saved from the scrap man. One of our local folk singers, Stanley Accrington, best known for his comedy songs, wrote a really good serious song about the last Bayer-Garratt. I think I may have a recording somewhere. If I can find it, I'll send you a copy. I'm sure he won't mind.
