Final 2011 Open Day

Hi, didn't we do well last Sunday! Our final Open Day for this year was just brilliant, warm (even hot!) sunshine, lots of happy visitors, a visiting loco, a visiting Guard, all in all a great afternoon, thank you all for coming!
'Hotspur', 'The General', and 'Thunderbox' bore the brunt of the services with John's visiting 'Toby' lookalike helping out once again. (thanks John & Jo, great to welcome you again). We were also pleased to be assisted by Tony from the Nottinhgham Club who was on 'holiday' in one of the Cottages on site, and who had 'brought' his Guard's gear with him, just in case!, so he helped out with the guarding turns which was excellent.
Sorry we have no photos to show you but your 'roving reporter' suffered a broken ankle whilst on holiday in Cornwall last week, so at the moment is doing no roving at all! But we'll do what we can to keep you up to date with the happenings at the ALR over the coming weeks/months, when we should have some exciting developments to tell you about !

Keep smiling
