What a Week !

Well, we haven't had a minute this week, lots going on to prepare for our first 2009 Open Day on Sunday, signs going up, grass being cut, track edges being trimmed, locos & stock having final checks & tweaks carried out, track adjustments here and there, weeds being removed from track beds, (some lovely tiny violas were growing on the Lake section ballast which we carefully replanted (the violas that is!) in the grass alongside!), catering stuff to check and top up, will the local newspaper listing's include us ?, roster being finalised, have we got enough leaflets ? oh and we need some more coal ! It's always the same and no doubt always will be !
Let's keep our fingers crossed for fine weather at the weekend, forecast is OK so far !!!!!!!
