Excellent August Open Day

We were delighted that the weather was very kind to us again yesterday, allowing everyone to enjoy a lovely, sunny and warm afternoon for our 2009 August Open Day. We ran a 3 train service for most of the afternoon, with Lucille, Hotspur, The General and Thunderbox in charge. Unfortunately, the Shay was failed just before the session due to a flooding carburettor caused by a worn or faulty needle valve which we hope to replace this week..
So, we were pleased with the attendance as the queue was not too long, everyone was in 'happy' mode, and a full crew allowed us to have time to chat to our visitors, which is always a nice thing to be able to do!
