"Unnamed Portrait"

British Railways no.60114 rests at Copley Hill Leeds. Dean Walker.

It's not very often that I feel I need to sing to the high heavens on - well - anything! But on seeing this portrait drop into my email inbox, I needed to reiterate once more, with a cropped and slightly edited version of the whole artwork (so that the story itself is not revealed), just how good the artwork for Tale of the Unnamed Engine is turning out to be.

I have so enjoyed going through my emails, reading up on how much some of you are looking forward to the book, so I'd like to offer my apologies for not being able to respond to everyone individually, and to say thank you for your continuous support.

2012 I hope will be the year of The British Railway Stories, and I will do everything in my power to make it so. There's so many stories still to tell, and fresh ideas being found, recorded and developed all the time.

So, to those of you on Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Blogger, and who may be writing in by email - you have my thanks and gratitude for your support.

Until next time!

Your show is just perfect, I hope throughout the later episodes you see some familiar faces and I have a reason for each charecter I'd like to see again
1.Hawk is one of the engines that survive.
2.Nigel is a good charecter so he deserves to see his old friend George.
3.I thought up a story about Gronk in his new home when one diesel turns bad so Gronk decides to go back to Copley Hill.

Good luck on the new episodes!

I just can't WAIT unil the new book is released! I think it is going to be a best-seller!

A question I'd like to ask is:
Why are you selling your book as an ebook and not a black-and-white printed version. I did hear that you were going to sell it in a paperback version but only for a limited time.
Please explain.
