It was a cool, November morning in 1996. Dane the Austerity Engine was working the yard. Being a main-line tank, he does general duties all over the railway, and shunting the yard at Tidmouth was no exception. His dark blue paint shown in the sun as he pushed and pulled trucks and coaches all around the yard. It was approximately 11:15 am, and Dane was resting in his shed. He was dozing, dreaming of days long gone, when Diesel pulled up along side, shunting the works train into a siding. "Good morning," he said. Dane yawned. "Good morning, Diesel," he muttered.
