We have had the pleasure of hosting the Branch Line Society at Apedale today and providing their Apedale Explorer III railtour. As the name may suggest, it is fair to say that we have taken the Hayfield coach to place where no passenger coach has ever been to before (or will again…until next time). Two trains were ran, because the seating capacity of the coach is a (theoretical) 18 – and even that assumes that all concerned are well-acquainted. All of the participants seemed to enjoy themselves, and our crews also got to do some very “out of the ordinary” moves around the site. And a lady dressed as a dragon turned up. Just another day at Apedale..
