Lovely Open Day !

A happy James bringing 'Isabel' round through the station on Saturday
Hi there. We enjoyed a super Open Day yesterday with lots (but not too many !) happy visitors enjoying the lovely warm, sunny afternoon. We had four trains running for most of the afternoon which kept the queues down so our visitors didn't have to wait long for a ride. We had Lucille working hard all afternoon (well done Keith!), ably supported by General, Thunderbox, The Shay, Nelson and Sergeant. Unfortunately, Isabel  was 'failed' on Sunday morning with a faulty injector, so did not make an appearance, which we were all sad about as she had run faultlessly on Saturday, and we have been looking forward to her being in action! So maybe next time?

P.S. Could we just remind (intending) visitors that the Ashmanhaugh Light Railway Club operates the railway on a private site which is only open to the Public on the advertised Open Days, so we would be grateful if people would not just wander in for a 'look round' at other times, as it is private property. Thank you.
