In a surprising outbreak of Spring sunshine sixteen of us forsook our gardening duties to play trains at Badlesmere. After the circuit was set up Paul H ran his GWR Class 2800 2-8-0 hauling a mixed freight train and Fred ran his GWR saddle tank. Ross then gave his Fowler 0-4-0 diesel shunter a turn on the circuit and later Bill gave his LNWR coal tank a run out. Graham brought along and ran his BR Standard Class 4 2-6-4 tank. This was a very nice running loco complete with footplate crew and detail.

David Ho having returned from his Antipodean escapades resumed his duties as Catering Manager, ably assisted by Bill, David B and others, again kept us all supplied with teas and coffees. Chris
