Easter Sunday and Monday got the 2015 season off to a great start, helped by the fine weather. 'Justine' was in charge with the Hunslet diesel hauling the first train each day. The 16mm layout was in operation as well and is an excellent added attraction.
Prior to that weekend, maintenance work was carried out on the signal & telegraph, and this is ongoing, particularly focussed on greasing and oiling points.
Work on the Simplex diesel is still underway.
Sundays 12 and 19 April are scheduled for diesel haulage. The 1940s Wartime Weekend is on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 April, when 'SENA 15' is due to be the main loco, with supporting roles for the Hunslet diesel and 1091. Please note the GWR charge an entry fee on the Wartime Weekend, but the good news is that the entry charge includes a free ride on the narrow gauge.
