Finally we were able to actually get together in an actual garden, and run trains together! That in itself was a cause for celebration; at this first meeting in 20 months we also remembered our friend Dennis. The R&BT tramway’s resident Double Fairlie has been named in his honour, and we ran a procession of trains in his memory.
Unusually for one of our meetings the sun shone brightly. Tea and coffee was flowing and there was a delicious spread. We even managed to finally eat the Christmas cake from 2019! Perfect!
We were fortunate to have lots of photographs from this meeting – so to avoid over-crowding this post the rest of Simon’s photographs can be seen in his photo album.
