Great Start !

Happy Boys all ready to play!
Blimey, what a great day we had on Sunday for our first 2016 Open Day, lovely warm sunshine and lots of happy visitors created a great atmosphere for us all to enjoy. Probably one of our best Open Days ever!

The Shay and Nelson on display in the signal box sidings all ready to do their bit!
We were delighted to welcome Chris, Paul and David who traveled up from Suffolk once again (they love it on the ALR!) with 'Little Olive' and 'Romulus', to help us out, and we had 'General', 'Thunderbox',  'The Shay',  'Chieftain' and 'Nelson' out to join in the fun. All went well and two of our newest members were initiated into our Open Day fun. 
So thank you all for coming to see us, it was lovely to see you all......
