Today was the first day of a three day bank holiday, and I am pleased to say it lived up to expectations, and those are that it will be cold, windy and sometimes wet.
Although it started off nice and sunny when I walked to the station it changed quite quickly early on to dull dismal and intermittently wet.
Just as we expect for a bank holiday weekend.
Running dual traction with both steam and diesel.
Here is the J94 arriving first service back to Mission Control a.k.a. Wansford, the sun shone as it arrived and went in again as it left.
The rest of the day was just too dismal to take pictures.
Not too busy I am sorry to say but we did a few passengers who were in a group and very pleasant. The shop was not bad either considering the weather and we did a good trade on hot drinks.
Paddy was with me today and was his normal happy self. Though a bit confused that he actually met me walking to the station. But I need exercise and going on four wheels to the railway is not doing me any good at all.
It was a funny sort of day and did not really flow, it just passed in fits and starts.
Still two more days of the bank holiday weekend to go and we will see what excitement they bring as we have rain forecast for both.
Currently sitting in the office writing this with the heating on in MAY!!!!! A strange year weather wise so far.
Onwards and forwards towards tomorrow.
