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

26th August 2018

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.

Of gas oil and hedgehog houses

29th July 2018

Back again? Not so many pictures to show this week - one of those weeks where a lot of things happen but scarcely worth photographing. So best read on..

Of pipe and bellows

15th July 2018

As a narrow-minded, er - narrow gauge fan I would dearly have liked to have been at the Tracks to the Trenches event this weekend, but sadly more normal activities prevailed. Not as dramatic as last week certainly, (phew) but enough to be going on with.

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 meetings, planned and chance

1st July 2018

We have a new clock in the shed. Well not new exactly, it came from my late father's house but I only found it again this week when having a tidy-up in my 'office' at home. It was still happily displaying the time, date, day of the week and temperature. I thought that it would be of better use at the shed, so now it looks down on us (the LCD display looks blacker from below) and I can exclusively reveal that the temperature in the shed touched 29.5 degrees today. Much tea consumed to stave off dehydration. But I digress...

Of wheels wanderers and scribble

24th June 2018

Gosh it's hot. Anyone would think it's summer., Oh, it is. Well that sneaked up behind me without me noticing.

Of a Father's Day trip out

17th June 2018

Father's Day, huh? So my son and I go to North Wales - just. A day out, all expenses paid? Nah!

Of seals, bushes and carpenters

10th June 2018

Right, back to normal. Have you seen that first programme on carriage restoration (C4) presented by Peter Snow and Henry Cole? (The latter has his own series 'Shed and Buried' which is frequently on in the afternoons on Travel Channel. Steph used to watch it if she wanted an afternoon snooze - his voice guaranteed to put her in a stupour). But why, given he is a motor-bike afficianado with no rail knowledge, is he co-presenting?
