Wellllll.....I was only thinking of real steam locomotive TTS decoders....

I never thought about the diesel ones....

Of course, the first "gronk" I saw, when a bit younger than now, was almost black, and had coupling rods...it also had smoke coming from the top of the front...

So I thought that it must be a steam locomotive! 🤷

My brother soon put me right though! 😉😀

We did work as volunteers on a couple of steam Railways, including the fun job of going under to rake out the ash pan!

And shoveling out the fire on the locos without rocking grates and hopper Ashpans!

I still like steam locos....😉😀
Best wishes,

Ruff...

Bin there,
early volunteer on Severn Valley, when 3205 was there in '69
Took loco crew to Stourbridge Junction shed to bring it to the line in my Morris 1000 van - happy days
A veil is over many escapades as many protagonists are still about, but if you were there, you'll smile when you read this..........................

Many amusing happenings that still cannot be commented on....

But the guilty parties all know who they are! 😉😀

I wonder if I was the only cleaner to make a point of telling the rostered crew to "keep it clean, and don't dent it!" 👩🏼‍🔧

I did once get a footplate ride on a loco that I had cleaned that morning...just me, a bucket of paraffin / oil mix, and a load of rags....steam locos are BIG....🙋

So true! We must write a book of fiction...............................................

Said exactly that to a friend on his traction engine  after my wife and myself polished it from one end to the other, spokes and all for it to go to BBC Studios for a Blue Peter transmission.

My only claim to fame was prepping 3205 to travel under its own power to Tyseley once, my mugshot landed up in the local paper .
Boy, did l get my leg pulled, people thought we were cranks. As the years went by, we proved it..............

Chat soon,
