Thomas the Tank Engine!

2013 - Watercress Line - Ropley - 1 ThomasOn Sunday 17th I managed to squeeze in a couple of visits to Ropley, one mid-afternoon and later in early evening.  Fortuitously it was en-route to another destination!  Unfortunately, services were very much delayed, so I did not see quite as much as I could have.  This give an opportunity to have a proper look at the Watercress Line’s Thomas the Tank engine, that was siting in the loco yard.

Thomas is a converted Hunslet Austerity saddle tank engine and it has to be said, it really looks the part!
