Today grandson James and I went by train to Aylesbury to collect what turned out to be a phenomenally heavy piece of Midland Railwayana, bought on E-Bay. At Aylesbury, where the train terminated, the driver came chasing after us and, peering at my S&C sweat shirt, declared "You are the man from Settle water tower aren't you?" Admitting to being guilty as charged, I told him of our errand. He came with us to the car park where we met vendor Nigel Lyons who had not only brought the heavy item to the station but had brought a trolley and helped us load it on the return train.
Grandson James was quietly impressed that grandpa was famous.
