Early May Running

Trains were running over the weekend of 5th and 6th May with warm, yes warm, sunny weather.

Visitor numbers were amomg the best for a long time with a healthy influx of first timers.  On the main line there were always four trains in action with, for a short while, five.  Not to be forgotten were the smaller trains working hard at the Winterfield end of the line.

The buffet did a roaring trade selling out its goodies on both days requiring urgent trips to supplement the stock.

A small display of  many types of stationary engines working on compressed air created a lot of interest.

In addition to the trains a miniature traction engine did sterling work providing rides around the car park.

From a more prosaic view point our treasurer went home with a broad grin for the first time this season.

Many thanks to each and everyone who made the weekend such a success.

The trains will be running again over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend of 26th and 27th May.
