Well you did us proud yesterday, thank you all for coming, as the weather was great, warm sunshine and breezy, lots of happy people, (the Ice Cream Parlour & Refreshment Saloon were very popular!) so Lucille, General, Nelson, Thunderbox and The Shay were kept busy round the circuit all afternoon. Unfortunately Hotspur was 'stopped', as on Saturday, during a Birthday Party, the reversing lever linkage broke and left her stranded. So, hopefully we'll be able to get the loco back into service soon as long as there is no serious damage. We'll know more on Wednesday when the loco will be thoroughly examined.
Signallers concentrating hard !

Work continues on Isabel who is having a footwell fitted to her tender to make a more comfortable driving position and then hopefully we will be able to give her some runs to get used to her 'ways' !
The two new signals protecting Laurel Sidings are now in use, so entering and laeving this area is now better controlled, as long as crews remember to report in to the signal box when ready to leave or when clear of the main line !!
Oh, and the gardening continues, surprise, surprise!
