Arkwright on holiday day one

This weekend sees the first day of the two day spring diesel gala and old Arkwright is looking after Ferry Meadows.

Now this is the station where it all began for me on the railway when I spent my first year there, it was nice be back there looking after it, I got there at 7.30am and got myself sorted out ready for the rush.

Paddy was my co-pilot and we had a really good day, nice passengers especially those off the caravan site.

The sun even shone as well which was a bonus.

But in all honesty I really missed Orton Mere and look forward to being back there next week, I miss the banter with the regulars and not least knowing where everything is! I don’t think I would like to be back as Ferry Meadows on a permanent basis.

So tomorrow is the second day of the holiday, but as is often the case on a holiday I can’t wait to get back home to Orton Mere again!!!
