Every year, I've posted tongue in cheek stories on 1st April for a bit of fun - "fake news" if you like, even if things like SEWWEB could actually come true (just wait on that one - an idea before its time).

This year, though, a picture - a real one, no funny business. And I look forward to travelling past where this was taken, and meeting up once again with many members, before next April 1st.

Stay safe, everyone

Err ... Paddington  Grin Grin

I suspect he too may have been on tour when I took the picture which dates from autumn 2018; on the walkway from Paddington main station past Paddington Basin towards the hotel and office complex up there.  On my way to the GWR Stakeholder's meeting.

Used to walk past it - usually behind it if it wasn't being photographed - twice a day on my way to, and from, my office. Now a distant memory ...
