Busy this weekend training members to carry out various duties on the railway. So busy that no-one seems to have actually taken any photos! But well done to Steve, Jonathan and Chris who passed out as Yard Drivers, and Bob, Andrew, Ed, Mike and Matt who have made it as Basic Shunters. Meanwhile, the final touches have been made to the Grotto and Train for the Great Arrival next weekend – when the annual sorting of the Naughty from the Nice takes place. As a consolation for no new photos, the pictures are December last year, and one from the archives – MotorRail 8748 being loaded for transport to Cadeby at Leighton Buzzard in 1979; this loco now lives at Apedale. The lifting method is unlikely to find favour these days.
