6th and 7th July 2019

The Station is almost ready for the 60’s Event next weekend. In the Paddock, both the Main Marquee and the Beer Tent have been erected. Bunting now decorates the marquees and both platforms.

The rebuilding of the litter bins continues, with several smart new ones now around the Station. The roses are all out along the platforms and look excellent. This didn’t stop the gardeners getting out and weeding, cutting back, etc. – there is always something to do.

North of the Station the East side fencing replacement is complete, with the last 20 posts installed today. Work will commence shortly on the West side, alongside the freight wagons where a short length requires installation.

Weighbridge Teas had an excellent weekend with lots of visitors, including a couple of motorcycle groups making use of their facilities. Sales went so well they had to re-evaluate the ice cream order to ensure there will be enough for next weekend. Both Weighbridge Teas and the Tea Hut will be open next weekend with the usual wares on offer and, for one weekend only, hot dogs! The Beer tent will also be open both days selling a selection of beers from Darwin (Sunderland), Yorkshire Heart (York) and Breworks (Pickering) Breweries. Cider and wine will also be available for those who aren’t real ale fans.
