Hobby of the Gods

I have always been convinced that railways are a divinely inspired invention.  You only have to think of Thomas’ author, the Rev. Awdry…

I recently found some family photos of a holiday in Crete, where we were taken to visit the cave said to be the birthplace of Zeus.  I was pleased to see that this particular deity had been well brought up, and had a narrow gauge garden railway.  Unfortunately, there was no stock left to give away his interests.  Probably GWR!  (God’s Wonderful Railway to non-UK readers).  So what went wrong in later life to make him take up hurling thunderbolts??  Perhaps an unhealthy interest in live steam….
