The blossom was putting on a fine show at the station while passengers boarded the train on our April open day

Our May open day was full of surprises – first the Rio Grande loco had mechanical issues, so we brought out Bessie, usually our works loco but a good stand in for passenger trains when needed!
Next we were joined by some lovely miniature steam traction engines…
…and finally, one of our regular visitors arrived in his 1940s Jeep! All adding to the fun!
For our June Open Day we were joined by steam loco O4 No.6284, visiting from Lancashire
Some more miniature steam traction engines also joined the fun – almost a steam gala!
