Steve's Blog - A little peek at Melbourne

A blog is an ongoing diary or commentary. You can communicate with other members or reflect on your life, work, or anything that comes to mind. Even if nobody reads your blog, you can keep it as an open journal. Few personal blogs rise to fame but you might gain a loyal following. One-line entries or post in great detail - it's up to you - but be prepared to receive questions and comments from other members.
Forum rules
Please take one "New Topic" and make it your blog - one topic only, please. Please post within the bounds of common decency and civility, and make your blog as long as you like. No advertising.

Any response on a blog should be to the blog owner, not to any other poster.

Had a phone call from my Son last weekend asking if I was busy.

He was planning to take his 2 boys train spotting on Saturday to watch a steam special and perhaps chase it a bit. Would I like to come.

Sounded good to me. 3 generations of the family chasing steam trains together.

Doesn't get much better than that :D

The train people must have thought so as well. Add more cars and you need 2 engines. If 2 is not enough make it 3.

Even the weather played along. We had to call it quits after 3 hours because the little guys enthusiasm ran out. He is only just gone 2 years old but he did enjoy himself.

Stephan,
Gorgeous pictures! Makes me envious that there isn't much like that around here. There is a locomotive up near pigeon forge and of course the legendary Chattanooga Choo Choo in Chattanooga, TN...

Latest project finished.
Always wanted one of these.
The hot bit is a new reproduction and is gas fired.
The mantle is a restored item circa 1920 from a cottage in Ballarat.

Now have a spot for my mantle clock.
