Had a really nice day out today.. visited the farm park with the family and of course.. the railway!
Very friendly bunch.. had a nice chat with a chap who I guessed was the 'main man' - knew Colin anyway.
He kindly cleared out some 'junk' in the shed so I could get a look at the Bagnall. They were running 'Pet' today.
He did mention that there's an event in October when Effie will be visiting, along with a Heywood wagon and he'll have both engines in steam. Sounds like too good an opportunity to miss I reckon!
I told him about the Gnotters and he hinted strongly that he was thinking of having a model layout / diorama of the SFR built to take and display at events.. now there's a challenge folks! Don't know how my bodging would cope with trying to model the steam engines but there's certainly food for thought isn't there?
I noticed that they were looking for volunteers too.. It's a tempting thought. There's scope for extending the line and there are certainly dreams of what might be!
