Quote of the day

[Of the parralels between the railways and the church] both had their heyday in the mid-nineteenth century; both own a great deal of Gothic-style architecture which is expensive to maintain; both are regularly assailed by critics; and both are firmly convinced that they are the best means of getting man to his ultimate destination. Rev. Wilbert Awdry who was born on this day in 1911.

    What a great quote from the creator of Thomas the Tank Engine.

  2. Andrei says:

    It was a joke Paranormal – its very Anglocentric and Anglican though but that’s ok because that’s the target audience

  3. Paranormal says:

    Yes I appreciated the irony along with the turn of phrase Andrei. Particularly from a train buff AND a reverend.

  4. Andrei says:

    So what would the Rev. Awdry think of this piece of 21st century English culture I wonder.

    Apparently we are about to have this inflicted upon us courtesy off our State Owned TV company!
