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 .

Nah, Deeky was far too busy...

First, he started the day bullying James again...

Then he went down to the station to "help out"

They were shocked when they found the truth out...

Because of Deeky's mischief which caused Thomas to swear, Thomas lost his job in children's television. Poor Thomas :(

I'm ashamed to say I wasn't taking pictures . My phone battery was down below 10% and I think the only one I got was of the great man himself being interviewed by look north . I'll see what my super duper top of the range phone has in its massive memory

Tomorrow's the big day then . First one ran 4th October 1976 . See I was listening to all the speeches . Funny how trains get to some people . My dad was a railway man through and through . I remember many hours of my childhood being stood on a platform waiting for such and such a loco to go past . I'm a child of the late sixties so straddled the beeching cuts and the end of steam . Must've witnessed the last of all these things in the north west in my day .

Lovely ! Knew there was a reason I ducked out of that one . Mind you I did drive 70odd miles to see the level crossing at the end of redcar station . That really was the short end of the stick . Sorry miles , know that's your neck of the woods but it wasn't one of our better day trips

You want deeky to murder the upper management of groupon ? Should we ask him first or just kidnap them all and herd them onto the tracks in front of his train
