Loco is restored for the Olympics

Loco is restored for the Olympics

A charming little [local] story here that could easily have been overlooked amongst all the myriad big articles and discussions that surround the London 2012 Olympic Games.

It's splendid to see that this little steam engine is to be given a new lease of life and will retain its place outside Stratford railway station as a welcome attraction for the millions who will be flocking to the area in 2 years time to see the Games. It could have been all too easy, as is mentioned in the video, for 'Robert' to have been put into storage (or even worse, scrapped altogether) but I am delighted to see the Olympic organisers appreciate such a wonderful machine to such an extent that they will have it restored and kept a part of the station and the great event that will be the 2012 Olympics.
