That is what it says on the cap... Should be Great Western Railway I know but then all the lines had their nicknames.. Taken just before he broke into song - does he remind anyone else of Topol? (Fiddler on the roof fame!)
Here the engine is being coupled up to the carriages at Minehead station for the return running to Bishops Lydeard.

Nice shot , would have been better if you could have placed him between the coupling and the carriage so one could have seen his full face but hey Im just nitpicking, otherwise its a nice image..

I want to thank this chappie for allowing me to use his picture too if he doe's look in! He IS a real character.

I am absolutely amazed at the response this one has had on here, thank you all so very much for your clicks and wonderful comments. I waited for a long long time to see this chappie and ask his permission to put this up - I thank him very much indeed if he does look in .
Thank you all once again, I am thrilled.
Beverley
Thankyou for the mod Michael, it does emphasise his face more and strengthens the intense concentration. But I do feel for me it is a bit too tight - I would still like to see the GWR properly although I do like the fewer distractions in the background.
