    And the Engine that pulled our carriage on a 45 minute country wander.

    She is a 4-8-4-4, I remember as a child standing beside the tracks into Timaru in the south island having these caoming past about 8 feet away at full steam.

    Saw the last official run of them by NZ Rail, a sad day.

    Then Mum used to whip our butts for getting covered in CR@P.

    Tell me about that Mate.

    Shade over 2 1/2 and he walked up to a 900mm (35.4") road cone the other day, he was a shade taller than the damn thing.

    Not that I have any idea where he gets THAT from.

    If you're interested check out the Thomas webpage, click on the "day out with Thomas" section. I've taken my son the last couple of years and it's a lot of fun, the lifesize Thomas is really well done and what kid (of any age) doesn't like a train ride ?

    Think you have one 4 too many, Bro. That's a Class Ja 4-8-4, Built by North British Locomotive Works in 1950 or 51. Those suckers could scream down the pike with a 400 ton passenger Train running at 80kph on 3ft 6in track, which is standard for NZR.

    Talking Well, Deja Vu All Over Again............

    I think it's time for another Harve shot....... This is really a shot of Harve's whole gang. I'm on the left end, my wife Laura (President of the GDVFD) is next to me, and the guy in the light shirt in the middle is Maryland's Governor, the Hon. Bob Ehrlich. Gov. and Mrs. Ehrlich and former NY Mayor Rudy Gulianni (sp?) dropped in for a visit not long ago. Bob Ehrlich will go down in history as the most "Fire friendly" Governor that Maryland has ever had. Truly a political figure who really cares.
