Some of Volunteers went AWOL today, taking a trip to the Steam Museum at Swindon. The Museum is great place if your a Great Western Railway enthusiast, the museum having been set up within the old Swindon Works and oozes nostalgia for the halcyon days when 3 beautifully made locos were turned out each day. Our Group had an introductory talk by Keith who had been employed at the works and had some great stories to tell of the camaraderie and pride in the workmanship that spanned generations of his family.
Our Group spent an enjoyable couple of hours mooching around the exhibits and casting our thoughts back to Broadway. Here Gord, Jo, myself, Terry and Paul (Also Paul C behind the camera!) sit on a mock up of a GWR Station. It will be Broadway soon chaps - hold that thought!
Any finally Rod and Tina take a look at Lode Star. The ladies in our lives are very patient with us and our hobby and it was great to see Tina and Jo's wife Hilary in support today.
