    Hang on, how safe was he, alone by the trackside with a druid on the Winter solstice :eek: he's dead lucky he wasn't sacrificed to the gods to ensure the rebirth of the sun .

    Answer - very!

    He's neither female nor a virgin, or young.......

    I prefer a young Buxom Wench to sacrifice! :)

    I was up the line today & despite the weather, which was foul, the trains were packed, the WCB was doing a roaring trade from the moment it opened & folks were still turning up late into the afternoon after the rain had eased off!

    Yes, the weather looks very good for Monday. Hoping to get a shot of 30925 in her new livery as well as I haven't seen her yet. Will she be in the yard?

    Had a fun day yesterday, despite it being a dank day, and for once no troublesome trucks were harmed during the course of it! :Jawdrop:

    Got a final run behind 92212 :), and the trains appeared to be busy without being rammed, the crews of both loco's put on a good show even after they'd swapped loco's - though the relief crew, otherwise known as the "Tea drinking society" seemed to send most of the day building up the courage to empty the pit....... :rolleyes:

    A few pics of the days comings & goings....

    An edited video still of 92212 at Rookwood on the last of today's trains. Should be back for some more filming tomorrow of the 9F's final runs :)

    Looking on the MHR website the timetable is grey for the next few days but that does not seem to tally with any of the timetables listed before going back to blue for 1st jan?

    What’s occurring like?

    It's a 45 minute interval service until the first - clicking on the grey days takes you to it. Not sure why the first is showing blue instead...

    Not the best way of doing it. Someone I was talking to at Swanage last week when I said I thought the MHR was running up until Jan 1 said no they are not. If I was not unwell I would have planned a visit today but when I looked last week I took greyed out to be no train, so did not more investigation.
    That 45 minute timetable with only limited time each end would have caused me to visit a few times during the year rather then the timetable that was in operation.

    Looks like it will be 506 & 30925 as the Schools was being prepped for running today. I am just about to travel on the 9F's last round trip.

    An edited phone shot of 92212's last run, taken at Northside Lane. It's been a pleasure!
