Just done two days single manning the station, not exactly rushed but in the summer sunshine the ice cream was popular.
Gem of the day was on Tuesday when a woman came in to buy a bottle of water. This gem was her contribution to the blog. It will go down in the hall of fame of amazing comments.
“You know the Santa trains, well why don’t you run them in August rather than December, with the better weather I am sure more people would travel on them”.
I must admit words failed me, Just when you think you have heard it all along comes another gem for the collection. I mean she was not even blonde!!!
Other than that an uneventful two days. Rosemary came to do some gardening today, her stamina for an elderly biddy (She will kill me if I put OAP) always amazes me.
Not opening Thursday I have too much to do, so back to the fun on Saturday. Yet again I am fishing round for staff cover, the lure of the train is too much for some volunteers who seem convinced that there is nothing interesting to do on the railway unless it’s in something that’s moving along the track!!
Weather has been super but I gather it’s due to break on Friday, just in time for the opening ceremony of something that I believe is happening sports wise over the next couple of weeks.
