Hi everyone

Bit of a rare thing in Cornwall is snow and as I have the day off tomorrow,I might be tempted to steam my engine and take her out for a drive in the snow.I remember looking at a photo on the old MW site of an engine being run in the snow in Sweden I think and had a similar thought.Snow doesn't happen that often down here so I thought I would have a laugh and keep warm next to a hot engine.If I do,I'll put some pics on the site.

Snow in Cornwall...a quarter of an inch of snow on the ground which was gone by mid afternoon.I know we've got off lightly but hows everyone else?
As for steaming and driving in the snow,it didn't happen
