My Record Should Never Be Broken!
Why? It would be beneficial as breaking old records is an important part of driving modern steam development forward
Anyone who wants to break my record is a speed obsessed jerk
That's not a good reason, why would you want to prevent the development of modern steam to ensure an old record is never broken?
Uhhhh... Just because it shouldn't be broken! GO AWAY! *Blocks User*
What a strange locomotive
Based on an argument I had with a strange railfan on Facebook. Mallard's lines are almost verbatim for the guy's actual arguments-if you can call them that. Why anyone would want to prevent the development of modern steam so that an old record is never broken is beyond me.
In case anybody is curious, The guy in the image is Livio Dante Porta who is known for his significant contributions to the research and development of modern steam.
jimzebmk1: Genuinely devastated to hear of Michael Angelis' passing. Such a huge part of my childhood, as I'm sure he was for everyone here. RIP Michael, you will be sorely missed by us all. Job well done, and thanks again for everything you did.

9: I'm not sure if now is an appropriate time to mention this, but I would also like to announce that I have raised £416.225 for the Bluebell Railway, by virtually rowing the distance of the English Channel.

Sleeper Agent: Gotta say Ringo will always be may fave but Michael was a most worthy successor and likewise sad that he has gone. Btw Engineerrailman you can edit and delete shouts on Probaords if you wish to combine the two.

Zack (Hufflepuff Batboy): There's something that keeps puzzling me; was Michael Angelis born in 1944 or 1952? I've always believed it was the latter, but some sources have said it's the former.

Zorgoth: Shared my condolences in the TV Series Discussion board; think I'm gonna watch some classic Thomas UK episodes on YT to remember Mr. Angelis by

Sleeper Agent: 1952. Not sure who published he was 76 first but The Guardian or otherwise he was 68.

Madness: Michael Angelis was always my favourite narrator. He gave a lot of great voices and he could always give you a good laugh at parts of his narration. R.I.P Michael Angelis .
