The Apedale Valley Light Railway hosted a birthday party yesterday. In a rather unusual twist, the party had a Punch & Judy man set-up at Apedale Road station. Very well-loaded trains took the guests to and from this venue, where all concerned seemed to enjoy the usual display of domestic violence. We have to say that the whole thing was extremely well planned by the mother concerned, who we rather hoped might volunteer as roster clerk for the railway. Now that the war is over, we are open every Saturday until end October plus Sundays 12 & 26th October. We’re doing Halloween on the 25th & 26th October, when the usual Halloween high-jinks will take place, with the cast of Witches, Werewolves and the Undead. Budding Zombies should get in touch here.
