MY steam engine! I built it! (Well I filled and sanded the wheels and reamed bolt holes in the bogey and radiused most of the frames and spotfaced bolt holes etc etc)
I look quite demented in that top picture - it was the first time I'd seen the thing working and I worked on it 9 years ago so of course I got a bit emotional! The platform was heavingly crowded with most folks staring at me, and someone said, "Oooh she's crying!". Yes well, there you go!
A lovely policeman took this photo for me at Waterloo.
