Second day of the spring diesel gala today, not ideal weather, but the visitors seemed to be enjoying themselves.
As with yesterday a few shots before we start to rabbit on about the day.
As you can see the weather was not exactly inspiring to say the least.
Not as busy ticket wise as yesterday but the shop did more, mainly in tea and coffee, I suspect to keep out the cold as it was cooler today and there was a cold wind as well.
The highlight as yesterday seems to have been the arrival and departure of the class 66, ironic that the newest locomotive on a heritage railway gala should appear to be the most popular. Especially as it was straight off a coal train and covered in coal dust.
Now the sharp eyed amongst you will have looked at the first picture and thought that it is the same as the picture I posted yesterday, well your wrong look at the head code.
Quiet tame customers today and the day flowed, Paddy and Nathan with me though Nathan tootled off to do other things and just Paddy and I for the second half of the day.
Keith was in the box when needed and I met his daughter in the afternoon, a nice person it seems and looking not a lot like Keith, I mean she has hair for a start. But I was unable to coax any juicy gossip from her about Keith which was a shame, but there you go.
That really sums up the weekend, as far as galas go it just flowed, which is unusual but I am not knocking it.
Busy week ahead but hopefully will do a blog post at some stage as I am still thinking of a subject to rattle on about.
Watch this space as they say.
