In this year of scaled down festive celebrations I thought it appropriate to wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays or Cool Yule with, not three kings from the east, but one king from the west! 😁

In this case it’s Great Western Railway (GWR) 6000 class 4-6-0 6023 KING EDWARD II during its visit to the Great Central Railway‘s winter steam gala in January 2013.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Cool Yule or whatever celebration floats your boat at this time of year…

A Christmas tree image from four years ago, captured at London St Pancras International railway station… If memory serves I steadied the camera by pressing it tightly up against one of the pillars that supports the upper level of the station.

2000 soft toys were provided by The Disney Store and when the ‘tree’ was taken down they were donated to KIDS, a charity which cares for disabled children, young people and their families.
