A new blog at last – sorry, it has been very busy here. We have had over 2,500 visitors to Steamworks so far this summer and sold over 1,000 tickets for the BVLR.

Rosie has been in action but we have a timing problem to sort out. A tendency, like me, to run out of steam.But it has good pulling power. Unlike me.

All aboard!

John and Bob have created this large locomotive sign to proclaim our presence 500m down Blyth Road. Seems to be working. We have been extremely busy at times.
