The Reverend Mr Awdry

A great quote from a man whose legacy will never be forgotten:

Railways and the Church have their critics, but both are the best ways of getting a man to his ultimate destination

Thats a great quote! But too often both railways and churches think we're just customers wanting to enjoy ourselves here and now rather than passenegrs seeking to arrive at a better destination.
