Two weeks to Easter and we've snow everywhere.
A busy week here at the Briddon Country Pile. Let me see what I can tell you of it.
OK, I admit there's been a bit of snow this week. Three or four inches judging by the layers on cars and locos and such.
I should have known better than to declare that a start was at last made on the Wickham, for despite Jagger's best intentions, family matters took precedence and he has been unable to get back to Darley Dale to capitalise on the start he made.
I'm looking forward to getting back to 'loco work' next year, but for the moment it has been more effort at getting things organised to achieve it.
It's actually Monday as I get this loaded, sorry if you've been waiting up Sunday night – hope it's worth the delay!
It has been busy this week for most of the wrong reasons.
Well, it looks like a mixed bag this week. Something for everyone, maybe. After all, I did promise you a wide-ranging instalment when I signed off last Sunday.
One of the effects of having a busy week like last is that this one is comparatively quiet. No loco moves, no major incidents. Nothing of interest – or is there?
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.
