A good roll-up of workers today with many jobs being undertaken.

Don't forgete we have our PRD next Sunday and the 24hr run the week after that. Should be good fun.

Thought of the day.
Don't worry if Plan A fails, there are 25 more letters in the alphabet.

Wow!!! It was too hot to do any work today, but we still had those dedicated members doing the right thing. I never got down there, but Col's crew were making finishing touches to the Six Bridges. They will be ready for the 24hr run.

Hopefully the weather will be a bit cooler tomorrow for the Birthday Run we have at 4pm.

Thought of the day.
I'm not lazy, I'm just very relaxed.

I hope you never went to the track for the Old Farts Day. I arrived around 9am and there were only 3 cars in the car park! I had a coffee and went home. The weather was so depressing, I sat in front of the computer and played games. Back in the shed tomorrow.

Don't forget about the Birthday party on Sunday afternoon with a 4pm start. Phone Col Jackson for more info.

Don't forget the 24hr run on the 4th and 5th March, Should be good fun.

Another perfect day for our members play day. Over 10 locos were on the track. A couple of us had problems, but testing our engines is what we have these days for.

Thought of the day.
My goal for 2017 is to lose just 30kg. Only 45 to go.

Perfect weather for our Public Running Day. Plenty of locos and plenty passengers to keep them busy.

Unfortunately, Woody played up again. Guess I have a busy couple of weeks trying to solve his problems. Actually, a lot of problems are with the char. It seems that the char is just the wrong size and is getting sucked into the tubes and blocking them up. Clinker is another major problem with Denis having to come off early because he couldn't keep steam.

Thought of the day.
I don't have an attitude problem, you have a perception problem.

Too hot to do much work today, so we didn't!

Nothing interesting at the General Meeting either and we were glad when it ended. Going to have to buy an air conditioner for the club house

Looking for a name for the Six Bridges run. I know, how about Six Bridges?
