Henry the Green Engine has had a make over.

Looking a bit grubby!

Sam


So was Henry when the Fat Controller eventually let him out.


Yes, appropriately so!

For those who are mystified.

We used to have an EP with Johnny Morris reading that.

I had it as well unless there were more than one with the stories on it,
one of them has a reasonable recording of a steam train going fast .
Mother got quite fed up one afternoon when I borrowed her Garrard record
player and attempted with various measures of success to synchronise that
section of the recording with my Tri-ang Princess Royal and coaches on
there never ending journey around a track on 6’x4’ board which represented

wherever I wanted it to be.


And Morris got the rhythms right which, ironically, the Beatles’s drummer
never did!
