Rabbit problems

Many thanks to our volunteers and visitors who came to see us for the Teddy Bear weekend. Our first weekend of socially-distanced steam operation, and a few lessons learnt. Not least that large Rabbits are rather disobedient. Behind the scenes, lots of other work carries on – for example, the Baldwin tractor has recently gained its cab. Very much a trial fit at the moment, the cab was rebuilt by a member as a lockdown project at home. The before and after shot shows how the cab has been restored to its original shape – it was clearly cut-down at some stage the loco’s past.We are operating this coming Saturday, with diesel traction. The next steam operations will be over the bank holiday weekend, with a socially-distanced Classic Car rally on Sunday 30th.
