The weather did not look to good to start with, then the sun came out good, then a shower or two of rain. It must be our Annual AGM day . This year we moved it to a Sunday to see if would entice more members to attend the meeting. I not sure it did, but I may be wrong. There were lads busy with their Sunday morning jobs around the site. Some got their engines in steam for a run The L&B was pulled up to the station for the first official outing.

Father's day and the sun is high in the sky. Nevertheless this stopped main member coming to the site today. Only a few made it. Peter had his paint tin out and was painting the High Level platform rail. Dave & Rod were found in the normal area working away. Martyn was busy band cutting check rails for the new bit of track. Allan was busy grinding the diamond crossing with my help later. Peter Mc had his engine in steam trying a new grate he had fitted

We had a birthday booked in for this afternoon so there were many lads working and getting things ready for the party. Working around the site was Len stopping a landslide by the tunnel wall. Dave and Rod were busy as usual making the center area look good? Funny thing. Up the road was a private house which had opened its garden to the public for charity. Somehow we got a family looking at the at the site (wrong address) thinking we was the private garden. They like it very much as well. The lads had knocked the wall out so you can guess my job for the morning. Peter R was preparing to paint a few things namely the rail on the high level station
Len busy stopping the land slide.
