Well todays weather was, shall we say mixed.
We had sunshine, torrential rain and hail. Lovely weather for any time of year but August. As I am writing this we are in the middle of more torrential rain with thunder and lightening thrown in for good measure.
For some unknown reason during the day it mainly decided to rain when the train was in, this is quite common, and not especially nice today.
Peter was helping today and we had a good natter between trains and customers.
Today was the first day of the Thomas Big Weekend and it was recommended that people travelled from us as we have a large free car park, so we were busy but in spurts before trains.
Some really nice people in as well though a few were for want of a better description hard work. I am sure most don’t mean to be but they were wanting lot’s of attention at the expense of other passengers.
Tomorrow the weather is forecast as being the same as today so that will be something to look forward to, it’s so nice to have rain in the middle of summer!!!
Highlight of the day award is given to the lady who asked if we had any bread to feed the ducks, she was eying my sandwiches I am sure. I am not sure if she wanted to buy some or just be given it, the conversation never reached that stage.
We will see what tomorrow brings, my guess is that it will be more of the same, watch this space as they say.
