Thank you, Jim and Tim for a really enjoyable day, I am sorry I did not manage to introduce myself to Tim and thank him for the invitation. It was such a pleasure to see and speak to the Guys who made my youth so enjoyable, namely Gordon Hooper who I have for so long wanted to speak to and personally thank him for the fireworks all those years ago!! I can only commend you, Tim and Jim for creating what you have on the website, it is truly unique, but Nine Elms deserves it's rightful place in history, and you have made sure that this is the case for posterity.

I would personally like to thank all who organised the Nine Elms Enginemens reunion which took place last Wednesday at the Bluebell Railway. I had a great day there and it was good to see such a turnout and wonderful to see the pride and camaradarie of all the former enginemen. Everybody had a story to share and I was able to meet many old friends and colleagues and I wanted to make a special mention that it was good to see Dick Hardy there who is now in his eighties. It really was refreshing to see so many of the old brigade still as enthusiastic and full of pride as ever. A wonderful day and a great tribute to all of those old enginemen , may there be many more days like this to come.
