Another birthday party took place on Saturday, all enjoyed. On the 7 1/4 inch gauge a couple of the chaps got a small piece of track manufactuered and conected. This will eventually be the outer track.
Saturdays weather was perfect hoorah. In the morning there was a birthday party, then in the afternoon some of the Evergreens members had a BBQ and a few laps of the track of course. Very nice too. There was an official naming of a loco with a respectful nod to the Ukraine. 'KO3AK' = Free Spirit.
A little bit of rain, then 8 minutes later it was dry again. Opening up to the public on August Wednesdays has been a success, everyone seemed to enjoy. Thank you to all those that came along. Some pics above from the 30th August. Thanks you S. Morley for the photographs.
Thank you to the classic cars that visited again, always good to see them. Thank you to Paul who steamed up his miniature traction engine. Thank you to Simon, James, Carol and also Andy and Helen for visiting and running with their locomotives. A shame there was three downpours, (some of the children seemed to be enjoying the rain though). Typical Bank Holiday weather, but we did all enjoy the drier times.
Evergreens has been successfully running on Wednesdays for the public. One more Wednesday left. A "thank you" to Simon Pugh for running his loco with us on the 23rd. Saturday is an open day with classic cars attending and maybe a few tractors and engines.
A good week for Evergreens. On the Wednesday the club was open for the school holidays sesion, and it went well. Then on Saturday and Sunday the club had a stand at the Lincolnshire Steam & Vintage Rally, several members attended and agreed was an enjoyable weekend.
The weather was much improved for the second of our Wednesday in August public running days. Enjoyed by all, and so good to hear all the nice comments. The weather is looking promising for this coming Wednesday. *** A window of opportunity on Saturday to do a little more work to extend the 7 1/4" ground level track. And after all the rain the grass was able to be mowed, it may take a while to get on top of the grass cutting again.
For the first time Evergreens was running trains for the public to ride on a Wednesday. After a wet weather start it turned dry and all those that had ventured out enjoyed Evergreens will be open on Wednesdays in August, just for the childrens summer holidays.
