Weekend Rails

what we do for our kids

Tales of the Andrew Briddon Loco collection

Elsewhere - www.andrewbriddonlocos.co.uk - you can see the "official" face of the locomotive collection my son has built up. Here on "Weekend Rails" you can read a blow-by-blow account of our work in restoring and improving them.

Of steps

22nd April 2018

Not been firing on all cylinders this week. Steph went to see the Doctor, got the usual 'take paracetamol and plenty of fluids' which didn't encourage me to seek the same advice.

Of flame and flu

15th April 2018

Being a life-time asthmatic and now a few years the wrong side of 60, I have, for this decade at least, taken advantage of the NHS' annual flu-jab, and queued up both in Darley Dale and earlier in Sheffield to get my dose of what best estimates predicted would be the prevalent strain that year.

Of HAPpiness and the ornamental pond

8th April 2018

You may notice that Weekend Rails has a slightly different appearance this week. The template has been updated and now should re-size itself automatically which should be of assistance if you are one of these who takes all your internet on your smartphone. The 'cloud tags' have been consigned to history but if you click on a tag below the entry you'll get a list of all the posts with that tag. Good eh? Now let's get back to normal business.

Of winge and bracket

1st April 2018

Probably a fairly short edition this week.
