What’s this I hear you say, the blog being written on a Monday.
Yes well, contrary to popular opinion there are other things in life than kettles and generators on wheels.
Anyway, you’re all waiting to know how the weekend went at the station. The answer is…… Not bad considering.
Opening on non-running Saturdays has certainly shown that there is business about despite the lack of smoke and diesel fumes. So that will be continued for the forseeable future when we have non-running Saturdays.
Sunday was a mixed day with the Swedish Railcar running, we did OK in tickets and in the shop, but nothing to get excited about. The weather varied from cold and dull, to cool and sunny, to bursts of rain and hail. So as Rosemary often says we did not have weather we had samples.
The Swedish Railcar was nice and full for most of the four services each way, and a service always looks better full than it does empty.
This coming weekend is Mothers Day, so we will have a steady trail of patient mothers, excited children and frustrated fathers… Oh deep joy…
Now back to proper work where I could do with 30 hour days and 10 day weeks……
