Lost in Wonder for Steam

My toddler and I went to see a model steam railway this afternoon. What things of glory these hand-built engines are - beautiful craftsmanship. Each costs several tens of thousands of pounds.

Fascinating, too, that most of the people young and old were boys/men (the only women I really noticed were talking about how to keep the club house well maintained - obviously the ones with real responsibility!).

Meanwhile James - and I - were mesmerised and lost in wonder. How did a fondness for little steam engines get in our genes? It certainly goes deep...
