I thought I'd introduce you to a special friend of mine. His name is Puffing Billy and he is a restored steam train that huffs and puffs his way through the forested hills and valleys of our mountain home. He passes noisily through our village several times a day to the delight of any one who sees him, bringing with him tourists from Melbourne who sit on the open carriage windows with legs dangling, grinning and waving at passers by. He is a wonderful part of life here in the Ranges, I can't imagine life without him!
