Under leaden skies the Railway came to life in preparation for the second Sunday of big line running. It was very reassuring to see the public waiting on the platform for the arrival of the first train of the day and a steady influx of customers was to follow who soon were relaxing in the warmth of the units. It was doubly rewarding to speak to people who had enjoyed last week's activities and returned for more of the same- they were not disappointed and shares were sold!  We welcomed John Allsop to the DMU drfver's roster : John is an experienced driver and this showed through with a  capable and calm approach to the task. The GLV did steady trade in warm drinks but not sandwiches and the Booking Hall welcomed several visitors and received more favourable comments. SL.
