(travel) more miles than any other house in Britain! Their house is made (make) from a pair
of Victorian railway carriages, and they have lived/have been living (live) there for ten
years. „I didn’t want (not want) to live in a train at first,‟ admits Pat, „but when I saw (see)
that this train had a garden with a stream, I just fell (fall) in love with it. We bought (buy)
it from an old lady, and she had already (do) done a lot of work on it. But there is a lot left
to do and we are still making (make) improvements.‟
    Visitors are often surprised to see how spacious the house is. All the dividing walls have

more than $ 100,000 for it, but it‟s not for sale.
„I am discovering (discover) more and more about the history of this train all the time,‟ says
Ronald. „It was built (build) in Swindon between 1855 and 1875. We have worked / have
been working (work) so hard to make it beautiful that I don‟t think we will ever sell (sell)
it,‟ he admits. „I hope it will remain/remains (remain) in our family forever.‟
