    A very well produced and clear timetable. Well done; this is a very pleasant line, and the GWR content does no harm!

    The morning started off with abysmal grey cloud which wasn't good for photos. The afternoon was blessed with sunshine... until a train approached which is when the sun usually decided to hide behind a cloud again.

    Nevertheless, a seemingly well-attended day, with favorable comments from crew and visitors alike.

    The highlight for me was definitely the engineering freight set; drew some favorable comments from passengers too. Hoping we can grow this side of things in the years to come.

    A couple of pictures from yesterday morning at North Weald. I think I might have to visit again for the LT weekend.

    How long will L92 be there? I used to commute every day on the Ongar branch, back in the tube-train ('62 stock) days. One morning I awoke from a dream involving an LT liveried pannier tank in the loop at North Weald. If I can I really must get down there to see it come true :)

    Afternoon All,

    The Epping Ongar Railway in Essex ran a steam gals last weekend and I went along on the Sunday. Needless to say, I took some photos and video and the first part of my video footage is now on YouTube:



    Hope it's of interest.

    TTFN,

    Ron.
