The Pretenders

IN THE U.S.A., A LOT OF “4-2-4, OR WILD WEST AMUSEMENT PARK TRAINS ARE REALLY GAS-POWERED.

Steve's Narrow Gauge Adventure

My Father’s Day present was ‘The Pretenders’. No, not Chrissie Hynde and crew, but a book about the steam-outline internal combustion locomotives running on miniature railways.

I must admit I like steam locos and I like internal combustion locos, but I’ve never been a big fan of pretend steam locos powered by diesel or petrol engines.

However, this book has changed my mind. Dipping in and out of it I’ve found myself thinking ‘That’s nice, I’d like to model that’.

For example, who could resist this Hudswell Clarke Pacific.

Yes, I’m growing to like the the steam outline pretenders…

P.S. If you are interested the book is available here

(I’ve no connection to the book, the publishers nor Amazon)

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
