PRD was very pleasant today. Not sure what the temperature was, but it was tempered by a cool breeze.
We also had over 100 scouts visiting and they enjoyed themselves.
We didn't have as many engine failures as we did last week thank goodness. The crowds were longer than we like, but we kept everyone happy

Woody was running better this time, although still not as good as he used to run. Big part of the problem was me firing the wrong way with the new char and not rsking enough.

Don't forget we are having a scale run next weekend. Should be good fun.

Thought of the day.
Story of my life :- Knew better, but did it anyway.

Old Farts Day was quite pleasant today. Weather was low 30's, but it wasn't unpleasant for the 30 odd members who attended.

Thought of the day.
Some people age like wine - others age like milk.


Saturday 2nd September 2017

Although it was a beautiful day, we didn't have many workers. Main progress was in the track at the southern end of the grounds and almost finished working on the Ugly - should be ready for PRD.

We also held our General Meeting. President Warren did a great job in spite of it being his first one. Quite a lot of discussion and thoughts - make sure you read the minutes when they come out.

Thought of the day.
I have come to the conclusion that I am a reasonably intelligent person who does moderately stupid things on a semi regular basis.

Corza sent me some photos. Have a look at the picture page.

Thought of the day.
I don't want to say I'm old and worn out, but I make sure I am well away from the kerb on trash days.

We owe our passengers an apology for making them wait for a ride. We had sufficient locos, but they started falling off the perch early. I think we lost 6 locos in the end.

Of course, the perfect weather was a bonus, but it didn't make up for the delays. Sorry people.

Guess we'll have to do better next month.

Thought of the day.
I recently applied for a part-time job at the mental hospital. Now I am there full time and they won't let me leave.

Not too many workers at the track today. It was also too cold to do much work! Let's hope it warms up for next weekend.

With the high winds over the last few days, we were very lucky as no trees fell down and only a few branches broke off.

Don't forget to pay your fees to Rhonda or you will become unfinancial.

Thought of the day.
Growing old is hard work. The mind says YES, but the body says What the hell were you thinking.
