Lookalike - Mystic Crowley?

Has Mystic Wolmar embraced the Dark Side?

Possibly - judging by a picture used to illustrate an article by the World's Greatest Living Transport Correspondent in yesterday's Mail on Sunday 'Live' magazine.

Eye readers are invited to read the runes and draw their own conclusions.

UPDATE: This from Captain Deltic...

Surely this is much better lookalike?

Happy New Year!

Very kind of you to mention my CB - but you are a year out of date!

My honour (and some of the others in the list) was in the 2010 list.

And I am still PPP Arbiter!

UPDATE: This from a Mr Justin McAree...

Umm.... your blog post of 3rd Jan 2011 appears to list recipients of honours from last year. Unless I'm missing something.

Oh, and Richard Burningham only got an MBE!

UPDATE: This from the Ffoil...

One possible addition to your list is an OBE to Sonia Rolt for services to Industrial Archaeology and Heritage.

After all, without the Talyllyn where would the preservation movement be ?

The Fact Compiler offers his most profuse apologies. Post amended and a promise made to lay off the last of the Christmas sherry!
