Over the years I have noticed a trend.
If it’s a dismal miserable day, as it was yesterday and we are running a service then invariably the day after, which is today will be wall to wall sunshine.
Yesterday and today ware a good example. Yesterday saw me open with the assistance (I use the term loosely,) of Jason and Tom. It was a dismal cold miserable day and we called it a day after the third service went into the city. There was nobody about except for a few hardy souls taking their children for a walk, and taking a cheap option compared with going anywhere with shops and possibly having to spend money.
There were a number on the Swedish Railcar but it was by no means full. It was the type of day that the sensible stayed at home in the warm.
Still next week sees us back to steam services so hopefully that will drag a few people out to visit. It will be cold as my first ice cream delivery of the year should be arriving.
