As the kids would say, ‘like yeah’!

OH did his apprenticeship here, Steve @coolonespa – many, many years ago!

“The Hunslet Engine Company was founded in 1864 in Hunslet, Leeds, England.
The company manufactured steam-powered shunting locomotives for over 100
years, and currently manufactures diesel-engined shunting locomotives”.

BTW have you been to the Railway Museum in York? If not, you’d love it!
