Good Friday

Evenin' all,

After the nice dry weather of the past week or so, it turned into
typical Bank Holiday weather, with drizzle, rain and leaden skies. Did
it dampen the spirits? Not a bit.

We had the official opening of the Narrow Gauge line, with the
speeches and banquet which always follows the opening of a new line. It
was good to see Dave Mee's daughter present, Dave did a lot of work on
the building of the line. During the afternoon it was open to the
public giving rides. Well done to all concerned in its construction.

The Idridgehay as well as the Ravenstor service were in full swing
with Iris running to Idridgehay. Even though loadings were fairly
light, I think that everyone enjoyed themselves, The Buffet was open
and the sale of toasted Hot Cross buns far out did the sale of

A respectable total was banked despite the wet weather

Down in the shed, the 70's duo of Roy and Les, applied more paint tgo
Hydra, whilst Hylton gave the Class 20 a bit of TLC and a dust over
with an oily rag!
