Pet tune

Not sure where this tune came out of. I just play it so I’ve christened it. Maybe somebody recognises it.

Derby College Roundhouse Library

The notation for this tune is etched into the glass walls of the library in the Roundhouse (a former loco maintenance shed) at Derby College. It’s not currently clear whether the railway connection is entirely due to obneb having christened it the Steam Train!
