Christmas Eve 24th December 2012

Dear all
Leigh has reported the final results for the 2012 Santa season with a super 47% revenue increase over the 2011 season. The LCC and Elf in Chief calculated that some 40 volunteers were involved in delivering the 12 trains we ran to the universal satisfaction of all those that visited us. A tremendous effort by all concerned and will take some beating in 2013.
I met one of yesterday's families who had been with us each of the nine years we have been putting on a Santa show from the early beginnings on the Gorsey Bank line with the interesting generator van, through the Ravenstor theatrical productions including the pirate ship to the current incarnation of the journey to the North Pole.
I wish all the followers of these daily musings a very happy Christmas and look forward to the adventures that 2013 will bring.
