Wilfred's journey

I have made this to wish Rein a happy blog birthday!

I have used her photo of Waldemar, and hope she doesn't mind that I've changed his name to Wilfred.

Here's his story:

Wilfred loved steam trains. He would cycle to Euston station from Cricklewood every weekend to watch the departure of the locos named after the royal family . He was presented with a return ticket to Glasgow upon his retirement; his dream gift.
