    Ann, do you think it is entirely appropriate to discuss anyone's private life on an internet forum?

    I suppose a moderator can get away with it!

    Confirmation of Friday and Saturday nights' FREE entertainment in Beer Tent now on website (see above for details).
    Not sure why Sunday's timetable has not yet appeared.
    Beer selection has reached 53, I believe, with Wine, Ciders and Perrys in addition.

    Am afraid not.

    The ones you have quoted unfortunatly are not going to happen.

    In fact no one will know until tomorrow as they will run under a VSTP

    I gather from WNXX that the convoy, slightly delayed, should be arriving into Swanage anywhere between 11pm and 1am...

    I had a phone conversation about 40 mins ago and the convoy was then in the fleet area. Thanks need to go to all those involved with bringing these engines down.

    No I do not currently volunteer
    had a cracking afternoon today, however was quite shocked to find that the 50% off for Camra members didn't apply to the day rovers after all. So we had to pay the £21 each at on the day rates.

    But again - the weather was fantastic, and I love the timetable. Even though we were 30 mins down, it was always easy to plan moves and it was so easy just to hop on and hop off. My only regret is that due to being on 'The Palatine' (or should that now be 'Master cutler') tomorrow, we couldn't stay until later in the evening. That said we did manage Norden P&R to Ewell in less than 3 hours on the return journey thanks to the free bus!
