I found a pic in a book I picked up in a used book store about narrow gauge railways of the world. In it is a pic from the Tallylyn Railway of Dolgoch being loaded onto a flatbed. It looks exactly like the pic from Skarloey Remembers (except for Douglas).
I've just thought of something. There is a steep hill that leads up to my house, and it is curved very much like Gordon's Hill was back in Series 1 of the TV series.
T'would be interesting if you could get a snapshot of it, Aidan. We'd all be interested in seeing it
Tonight I finally took the opportunity to snap this pic from the top of Maple Ridge facing west. (approx. 60 miles east of where I live). It has always reminded me of Gordon's Hill with the curve at the bottom and Lake Huron and coast in the background.
Not sure where this is but I instantly saw it as the North of Killdane, I did an art edit to illustrate. I chose G1 because of the tender and cylinder, easier to edit an A1/3 pic into Gordon 1 over 2. What you think?
I recall, when visiting the Lake District, changing trains at Barrow en-route from Arnside, where our youth hostel was, to Ravenglass. More to the point, Barrow station had changed very little since Gordon the High Speed Engine (I think) was written hence the illustration. On the other hand, I could tell that on the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway that Dalegarth station looks VERY much like Arlesdale station on the Arlesdale Railway.
This place [Deland Train Station] reminds me of Sodor, I guess its just the thrill of waiting for a train to come really. Have you ever dreamed one of the characters would pull up to the platform and speak to you? (Or maybe the real engine) ...
I honestly had no idea where to put this, but whilst browsing through YouTube looking for Irish steam videos, I cam across this, which for obvious reasons stirred a great feeling of joy and nostalgia for me through its content. The scene, aside from the diesels, consists of two Irish 4-4-0s (one red and one blue) and a big green 4-6-0 Maeve. This is almost identical to Sodor, minly through the colours and shapes of engines that seem to represent Edward, Henry and James. Anyway, enough ramblings, here's for the video. Enjoy
See what I mean
All the Best, Tayhan

Fox: It's another ERS Novel weekend, which means we get to see the final Story Arc of book Two of ERS #9 Dockside Engines! Just what did Stephen mean when he said 'we don't leave family behind'? And just why did Marina never make it into the Railway Series?
