A weekend of three halves.

Last weekend saw our diesel gala.

It was a mixed three days, interesting in some ways and disappointing in others.

Here are a few pictures.

As always click on an image for a full sized version.

You will see in the background to a few of the images the river was running nice and high all weekend, it was the subject of discussion with a number of visitors. It made a change from them trying to discuss if a locomotive was the right shade of blue our not!

The rain on Sunday did us no favours, and the Friday and Saturday were nothing special either.

Only one person asked us what steam trains were running, funny enough they did not seem too disappointed when I said none.

So there you have it a average gala I suppose, but who knows what it would have been like if we had managed sunshine all three days.
