A gentle day with a birthday charter for Matt Higham and his friends. Matt has been very active as one of our younger volunteers and has the honour of having Bob Gibbens as his Granddad so has steam in his blood! It was very good to also welcome his uncle, Spencer Gibbens, who unlocked the Railtrack bureaucracy that gave us initial access to the Railway and orchestrated the lease/purchase agreement that has enabled us to do what we have done in the last ten years.
Many thanks to the train crew that made it all happen today.
The Works Train is cancelled tomorrow as many of the team are unavailable but the VCT and DST hope to be in action. Works Train activity will now be consolidated to Wednesday this week.
