Of departing vans

16th September 2018

Welcome back. Some of this week's plans didn't happen. Other parts ran late. Some of the week didn't get planned at all.

Of shunts and tours

2nd September 2018

Feast or famine – at least as far as pictures go. Last week I had a load – this week? Rather less.

Of bolts, present and not

Last week I had a dearth of pictures. This week? Well, it's scarcely a surfeit, but enough to be going on with. Read on, dear reader.

19th August 2018

A slightly briefer report this week, Steph's away at our daughters so on my return from the shed I had first to complete plant watering and cooking before even thinking about blog composition.

Of bogies, flats and vans

8th July 2018

Well we broke the 30 deg C barrier in the shed today, touching 30.1. Lots of tea and flavoured water to drink. Lots of sweat dripping off foreheads. But enough of that, let's get on with the week.

Of ramp at the ready

10th September 2017

14901 is still on holiday in Old Oak. It was supposed to be collected on Wednesday, but early on in the week it was apparent that Reids would have to reschedule so what was the last exhibit to arrive at the Open Day looks like being the last to depart.
