I Love Railways

I grew up on the railway. My Dadcu is a station master. It’s just a coal line. Three trains a day. When I was little he took me to work with him. Get me out the house! I used to play on the platform. Until the big red engines came in. And then I would be in the cab. And Dadcu wouldn’t know where I was. But that’s the magic about railway families. You’re always safe.

There are goods trains. The oil trains from Milford Haven and the big coils of steel going to the tin plate works. [@1725,firefall]

sounds like you had a wonderful childhood

Well I did. I didn’t realise it then but growing up on the railway is quite unusual. Even now when I go on a train the conductors always want to know how Dadcu is. [@7768,olderuncle944]
