As a follow up to Eileen’s post on the Thomas Flyer’s shipping from Seattle I’ve attached a photo below showing the actual loading of the Flyer onto the ship……not exactly how it’s done today!
Another interesting point, unknown to me till recently, is that the Flyer arrived in Japan on May 10th. That happens to be the date we depart from Yokohama to begin our trip across Japan,following the original 1908 Great Race route to Paris. Pretty cool coincidence since this was completely unplanned on our part. This is a great beginning omen ….maybe the spirit of the Flyer is with us!!
