Well last weekend was another very successful Spring Gala for the the L&BR. Today the Thursday gang continued the work of putting everything away again until September. The temporary marquees were taken down and stored, tables, chairs and signs put away, Barbecues cleaned and stored.

2. The footplate crew today were Doug Mills and Graham Bridge and the loco was ISAAC.

3. Volunteers enjoyed their afternoon tea and cake break outside in the spring sunshine.

4. The other task begun today was preparation of an area within the shed for further concreting the floor.
