Well we had it all today, sun, two train service and two people helping me.
Both steam and diesel running today which was a welcome bonus, Had Stephen and Nathan with me, it was Nathans second day and Stephens first.
Both did well considering we had a till that jammed early on, thankfully we could get the money out, so one call to Wansford and another working till arrived. Bit more flash than the old one with oodles of buttons and bleeps. But it works and both of my helpers went solo on it, so it can’t be that hard. Shame their maths skills leave a bit to be desired, but that seems to be a mark of the current educational system.
As always trains were late but they improved as the day went on, never easy to pick up time on a pink service.
Ice cream went out of the door at a steady rate and so did bottled drinks. Not much in the way of chocolate though.
Highlights of the day.
Dougie the guard who is always happy.
Credit card slips finally arrived which put us in a state of shock
Nice customers all round with not a miserable one in sight which makes a change.
Nathan is with me tomorrow again and will I am sure make a valuable member of the team.
