    With thanks and credit to Monty Python and The Hackenthorpe Book of Lies (p.74, The Brand New Monty Python Bok), which amused me immensely as a teenager and eventually helped inspire the site you are reading now. Not an ENTIRELY wasted youth then.

Norah Jones and Ivor the Engine

Ivor the Engine

Jones the Steam was shocked when Mrs Portly abandoned their child in a basket at the station

Singer Norah Jones is the daughter of famous animated character Jones the Steam, best known for his role in popular documentary series Ivor the Engine. She grew up in the cartoon Welsh village of Merioneth and Llantisilly, where her father worked for the local railway station.

She is the result of a torrid affair between Jones and company owner Mrs Portly – who refused to have anything to do with the child – and first learnt her craft at the knee of local songmeister Evans the Song.
