I am late with the blog of the bank holiday, tut tut whatever next.
Well the bank holiday was interesting, although I was only at the station for two of the three days.
Saturday was all you would expect from a bank holiday weekend, we had cloud, heavy prolonged rain and towards the end of the day some sunshine. I must admit we were busier than I expected.
Sunday and Monday were nice sunny days which is unusual for a bank holiday, Sunday as would be expected was the busier of the two, it was back to business as it was a few years ago, people were out and about.
Monday Peter and his daughter Susan ran the station so I could go and visit my mum who is still in hospital, I reckon the station would have been less work but there you go. Mum, for those who have enquired is much more chipper and on the mend, they just need to get her more mobile. They are trying a walking frame, left to me I would opt for a stick of dynamite.
Getting back to the railway, we are running Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday this week as it’s the last week of the school holidays. Next week will see the little darlings back at school, and some normality return to things.
I am writing this on the Wednesday and I am at the station open for business, how busy we will be is anybody’s guess, as I have often said time will tell.
