    Well, after the WSR my sons & I enjoyed a ride round in the gathering gloom this afternoon.

    We were made most welcome and its good to see that the line is now in the hands of 'railwaymen' rather than 'showmen' who understand what needs doing and have access to the skills to ensure the lines future
