Benevolent Butch, Mindful Mike and Tempestuous Ted managed to rouse 1392 for her days toil. And Magic Mike brought donuts. Again. We like Marvellous Mike!
Glorious Gloria, Kindly Cathy, Rowdy Rose Marie, Jocular John B and Irrepressible Irene manned the gift shop but unfortunately mismanaged the drumstick inventory i.e. no over-stock to go into the Calder Shop freezer.
Harmonious Herb and Jovial John B manned the new visitor orientation table in front of the gift shop whereat (yeah, it's a word) they provided the site map and tour directions to alleviate congestion in the gift shop. This initiative was hugely successful. Except for the lack of a tip jar.
Tenacious Ted, Bulldog Butch, Joyous Jim and Mischievous Mark handled the cab duties and managed to survive the day without heat stroke, no mean feat with temps reaching 130 degrees + in the cab.
Impeccable Ivan and Nefarious Niale managed to stay cool in the coach despite the hot temperatures and the odd warm temper.
Splendid Stephen provided a huge cake beautifully decorated with a picture of 1392 in honour of her making the century mark. We all had our cake and ate it too. And more cake. And still more cake.
Bashful Barry C and Judicious John R ably protected the crossing. No harm came to the crossing during the making of this story.
Jaunty John R also did the telegraphing duties in station between his crossing guard stints.
Befuddled Barry C had the onerous duty of cutting a frozen DQ cake in honour of his milestone birthday (actually tomorrow). In fact, it was so frozen and he is so strong, the knife broke! Happy Birthday, young fella.
Dashing Don W. again did shop tours and provided support for the motive power group.
Bouncing Barry C and Jittery Jamie closed up the cars and collected the garbage at the end of day while Helpful Herb, Inspiring Irene, Steady Stephen, Glowing Gloria, Keen Kathy and Rational Rosemarie shut down the gift shop for the season and Nimble Niale cleaned up the station platform.
Another operating season has come to a close. Just in time to start preparations for next season!
