Birthday 'Boy'

Ray with his trophy and certificate.

On Wednesday (18th), Ray, our hardest working member, celebrated his 8oth birthday. Over the Winter and Spring, Ray has 'embarrased' us younger members (and when we say younger we mean a bit younger than Ray!) by working mainly on his own in all weathers to get our track up to scratch for this year's running season, and we think our trains are running better than than they have ever run before.
To mark the occasion, we presented Ray with a Certificate and a Golden Rail trophy during the lunch break, and Ray provided us with sausage rolls and a cream cake.
We should also mention that Ray cycles several miles to get to the ALR and after a full day's work cycles home again.
So, keep it up Ray, you seem to have many years work left in you yet!
