July 2008 Steam Day

The weather was a bit 'Wimbledon', much like it was this time last year, but that never stops us, nor our regular visitors!

Thomas Junior was in steam again, and managed a short run, if not actually pull a train load.

June 2008 Steam Day

Good weather once again (it's always about the weather, isn't it?), for our third Steam Day of 2008. This was the busiest Steam Day we can remember having, with full trains all day long.

Thomas Junior was in steam, much to the delight

of the children, and just about managed one trip - not bad for it's first outing in nearly 2 years!

May 2008 Steam Day

Bit of a contrast in temperature to the April Steam Day.

One or two minor problems with Excalibur in the morning, but otherwise business as usual!

April 2008 Steam Day

Despite the extreme weather we went ahead and steamed up on Sunday 06 April - it takes more than a little bit of snow to stop the railway enthusiast!

In case you were wondering, yes, it was cold!
