"MORE FAMOUS THAN THOMAS!"
The results are in from Locoyard, part of the UK Heritage Hub, in their quest to find the world's most famous steam locomotive...
The results are more than a little surprising...!
With an absolutely stunning 15% of the votes, "our Allen" has narrowly pipped a certain little blue tank engine into third place, behind Australia's no.3801 in second, and the UK's Flying Scotsman in first place.
It is an absolute honour to come third in the poll, and it is a testament to our fans around the world.
Thank you all so much for your support, particularly with the book nearly ready to hit the shelves at long last.
Thanks both to Locoyard and the UK Heritage Hub for setting up the poll, their coverage and their support.
Until next time!
