Boxing Day Run
|With the weather been so mild I did expect to see more activity in the steaming up bay. Mike and myself remarked the days when it was heaving with people here today and New Years morning, how time changes all sorts of things. The SM 32 was in use with steam and battery locomotives. Bob Bates was having a run around on the high level and Mike and Steve W bought the Allchin's to have a run around the field. The Hymek was out to give passenger rides to the few how popped into see what was about|

|Another very mild December morning. A hive of activity Dave on the big lathe turning a shaft for the L&B loco helped by Chris. Mike was busy de rusting the wheel so they can have a coat of paint. Brian was cutting steel for another part to be water jet cut. Rod was attending his rockery, Dave was cutting grass! Yes that what I thought. Peter Mc and Mark were checking boilers one for Dan and the other for John|

|A very mild December morning after all the high wind that we have been having. I found Brian and Chris very busy making a new temporary station (top secrete, job I was told) and need helping, So I got stuck in. Allan Dave and Rod were busy getting weeds out the pond. Dan & Mark were putting ballast in the last bit of SM32 track. Peter was busy painting in the kitchen area. Mark B was busy with fair light repairs in doors. Rodney was with us on the top secrete, job putting a bit of fence up. I believe, Peter Mc Brian Dave Chris Mike were all down the compound area working way on their jobs L& B for one.|
About to start putting more slabs down.
