Niale was hidden away in the sign shop producing, well, signs.
Don regaled the visitors that popped into the Calder Shop with tales of railroading in days gone by, until a fellow let it slip he was a ham radio operator and then the both of them were hamming it up.
Barry had another accident free day with the speeder. Not saying that is not the norm. It just seemed to be an odd day for speeder safety, what with an inordinate number of mothers that "allowed" their children to be on the track during the speeder runs. Operation Safety colouring books and information are included in all of our children's 'Goodie Bags" in an attempt to do our part in educating children and parents about the importance of taking railway safety seriously.
Jamie had a quiet day, no wasps to do battle with and only two walkway boards to replace. And it was nice and cool in Calder Shop whilst hosting several visitor groups as they viewed Locomotive 1392.
Another interesting visitor appeared today, a lady who was raised in McLennan as her father was a conductor and engineer on the NAR. She apparently has a record of him operating Locomotive 1392 on the NAR.
