It’s been the traditional pre-Gala mega shunt at Apedale. Pretty much the entire contents of all the sheds get extracted, shuffled and put back into the shed in a slightly different order. Apparently there is a carefully worked out master plan underlying the whole thing. The Master Plan for this occasion involves putting anything Leeds-built or Leeds related into Pole Position ready for next weekends jollifications. We have also taken opportunity of the decent weather to wash down a fair few of the fleet, and many of those expected to star next weekend have been test run. Unfortunately, a few teething problems emerged, but that’s how it is with vintage machines some times. They really are such divas. Hopefully, we’ll see you next weekend. We’ve reached cut-off for advance tickets, but don’t worry – we’ll try to keep the queue short, and it will all be worthwhile.
