Many of you may know my kid is trains obsessed . A couple of days ago he came across a report that sir kenneth grange, designer of the intercity 125, would be at the national railway museum along with two recently repainted examples of the class to celebrate 40 years since it's launch. (do you launch a train?)
Anyway , off we trotted to take several thousand pictures and chat with similar minded people . At least he did, was all lost on me . I persuaded him it would be a good idea to take the car not the train what with Sunday services engineering works and the like . Unfortunately sir kenneth did not take this into account, his train was three hours late !
My feet are killing me but I have one happy son . Not sure quite what sir kenneth made of being asked for a selfie but he took it in good stead .
