A Grand Day Out!

Postby More_Cats_Than_Sense » Tue Jan 01, 2008 8:16 pm

The Gn0rfolkers had a "Grand Day Out" today on the Bure Valley Railway, on the early "Mince Pie Special".

A fine time was had by all, and special thanks must go to Emrys and Janet & Ralph (they Gnow why :D :D ) thank you.

A few photos taken by myself in the fine drizzle with a 3.1MP £20 digital camera.

Spot the two suspicious looking characters on the far right in the above picture :wink:

A "Grand Day Out" indeed :D :D :D

If at first you don't succeed, use a bigger hammer.

The only thing that keeps me sane, is the friendship I share with my collection of singing potatoes....

Never knowingly sensible!

Just like to say I'll second that - and add a couple of photos of my own.

Another shot of 'Spitfire' our loco for the day.

From the right - Emrys, Ralph, Barry, Nick and Jon - who is trying to teach his youngest daughter the finer points of Walschaerts valve-gear :lol:

We all enjoyed it so much and thought it was such a good start to the year that we aim to do the same again next year and the year after and ...until it becomes a tradition 8) 8) (BVR please take note).

I would post my photographs and video from the trip but unfortunately I'm having computer problems at the moment. :(

Thanks to Emrys and Ralph & Janet from me too.

EDIT: Got my computer working, it turns out that power cable for my memory card reader had unplugged itself. Simply plugging that back in has solved every problem my PC had. :roll:

Thanks for posting the photos. They've come out better than mine as usual. :roll:
