Last weekend this week.

This weekend sees the last public services stopping at the station this side of Christmas.

The station will be open both days weather permitting, so if you’re passing please pop in and say hello, you and your wallet will be most welcome.

It seems most strange

Here we are on a Saturday afternoon and I am at home.

Normally we would be at the station, but no public services today.

It seems strange to be sitting here and not be at the station, I am at home every day but today feels different!!

I remember when I worked in retail and we did permanent Saturdays, it never felt right when I had a weeks holiday and was at home on the Saturday.

Oh well I wonder if it will feel strange tomorrow not being at the station on a Sunday?

 

The difference between sunshine and dull weather.

Now the one thing we get lots of at the station are photographers, they come out in all weathers.

Some prefer dull conditions and some sunshine.

Here are a couple of shots of the visiting Jinty last weekend, the dull one was taken on the Saturday and the sunny shot on the Sunday.

Which do you prefer?

Personally I prefer the one in the sunshine, but it’s all down to taste I suppose.

We just have two weekends left to run and then that’s it until after the Santa trains. I will do my thoughts on the year shortly when I get some free time. This retirement lark is hard work I don’t know how I had time to go to work.
