True stories about real engines !
Groudle Glen & Amberley Steam Museum
Where Sea Lion and Polar Bear live now
Here's a link to me reading 'Polar Bear and Sea Lion'.
No.5 Polar Bear and Sea Lion
Sea Lion is still at Groudle Glen
taking tourists through the leafy glen to the cafe and caves where the animals used to be. The Isle of Man is a great place to visit.
The driver of Polar Bear really did have a nasty turn. He didn't tell the railway that he was epileptic.
Although nowadays we can see that it's very sad to keep polar bears and sea lions captive in such a way, please remember that in Victorian times, they still sent children up chimneys, and soap was only just invented! There were far more wild birds and animals in Great Britain too.
If you want to do your bit now, help save hedgehogs and frogs and birdlife and grow plants for bees.
Polar Bear is now at the Amberley Heritage Museum in East Sussex, where there's lots of exciting things to see and do too.
