Some time ago we we went up to the Sunshine Coast on a Sunday to take a trip on this marvelous tourist steam train that leaves at 10.00 AM from Gympie for a two hour ride inland to Imbil, stopping at all the stations.

Ian, a friend from England on holidays was staying with Carol's in-laws. Ian, used to be a steam engine driver in England in his younger days and naturally was thrilled to come along. Once the engineer found out about him, Ian was invited to ride on the engine.
