It’s been a weekend of 2 location. The first party of Wombles travelled down to Henley on Thames to visit the honourable Sir William McAlpine’s residence – Fawley Hill, and his private railway. The second party kept the Station and Weighbridge Teas going.
At the former there is a 1 mile standard gauge railway with steam and diesel locos, plus a very extensive museum of railwayana. This site usually only opens on 4 days a year, but was specially opened for NYMR volunteers only this weekend. An excellent time was had by all, with numerous wagon and brake van rides. A lucky few even got a footplate ride and to drive a diesel shunter.
At the Station more timber has been prepared ready for use by the JVs; the cleaning gang have tackled the General Room boarding (making it look very smart), and painting of the NER van body has continued.
Weighbridge Teas had another good weekend, with a cross section of their goodies all selling well.
