A Bit of Chat – May Day

A Bit of Chat

The May Day Bank Holiday was a fairly quiet affair – the weather was cold for the time of year and a stiff breeze didn’t help.  After the recent good numbers through the museum, the best we could manage over the weekend was 208 on Monday.

We have an important museum inspection coming up on May 16th and we are asking for help in keeping the Heritage Centre neat and tidy – it would be very much appreciated.

This Friday, 7th May, we have a party of children from Cambridgeshire paying us a fleeting visit, just a tour of the museum and heritage centre – sadly not enough time for a train ride!

I’m told that the paint job on Linda the Bagnall loco is now complete ready for her trip to Snibston.  I haven’t seen her now that Dave has worked his magic but she was looking very well in her new colours.Looking smart even before Dave got to work!
