The End of a Legend

I have been up to Yorkshire yet again this past week to the funeral of one of my uncles.  The picture below is the start of the family story ....

I believe this to be my great grandfather and he made these working models which are still in the family on my mother's side.  The uncle who died recently built these and several others ....

It was therefore a fantastic surprise to see yet another one of his engines (which is now owned by someone else) arrive at the church in front of the hearse for the funeral service.  It was then taken to the pub where family and friends gathered for refreshments.
