After our disappointment last month following the cancellation of our first 2008 Open Day due to the waterlogged ground, we were delighted to be able to welcome all of you that came to see us on Sunday, especially as the sun shone for us and enabled the afternoon to be thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. We had a good turn out of visitors with 'Hotspur', 'The General' and 'Thunderbox' taking care of some 350 'passenger journeys' between them. 'Sergeant' also made an appearance on our 'demonstration' goods train.

We were delighted to be able to commission our ticket office for the first time which was a great sucess.

So, if we didn't see you on Sunday afternoon, hopefully we will see you on the 1st June ?
