Last day of the year

Well today is the last day of 2009 and I single manned Orton Mere.

Gawd it was cold, and not exactly lively, we had two passengers who paid on the train and four lookers and that was it.

Thankfully lots of sorting to be done so no time to be bored. Even then I closed after the second service. We are not opening the station building on New Years day, if it’s as in previous new years days then it will be quiet at the station.

Looking at the few people passing I am tempted to ask those with dogs why they regard a bag of dog crap as a trophy, they walk along swing them in the air as though they are about to hurl them for their dogs to catch. Most strange!!

Every journey needs a first step

Well this is the start of Old Arkwrights Blog.

No mud slinging allowed.
On doubt the layout and colours will change as I have a play, but like working on the railway the object is to have fun…
Instead of my yearly ramblings I will now be doing a regular blog, but as with the yearly offerings don’t expect mud slinging or major moans.
There is a time and place to moan and here is not it!!
