Well! What do you make of that then. Mr Martin stands proudly alongside the Talyllyn Railways number three, Sir Haydn, renamed Sir Handel for the TR's "Duncan Day".
I was invited onto the Sodor Island Forums "Wales Week 2009" and had a terrific time with the hosts of SiF. I had a lot of fun going around the Welsh railways - best pics will be up shortly in another post this week.
The forum moderator, Ryan Hagan, was a very gracious and may I say terrific host, and it may surprise some of you to know that the start of the holiday - 23rd August - was a year to the day that I joined SiF and started hosting my series of videos there.
Ryan and the lads were great fun and it was a wonderful week. I will never forget this great welsh adventure!
Until next time - in which I promise to have some very real updates including (possibly) a small teaser trailer available for viewing...
'Till then, Ta Ta for now!

In between scenic work for the next episode of The British Railway Series, I have been working behind the scenes with a publisher and artist for my book. Here is a sample piece of artwork, created for me by Chris Signore of the Sodor Island Forums. Seen above, it is simply superb work, and I am in no doubt I will be returning to Chris for some more artwork towards the prototype copy of my first book.
