February ’22 meeting at the Lambak Railway

After our Christmas meeting was comprehensively derailed, it was wonderful to be able to get together again to run trains on the newly revamped Lambak Railway. For the second meeting in a row not only did it stay dry, the sun even came out again (even more astonishing this time given the time of year!) Since it was our Christmas meeting we had mince pies to follow an extremely delicious chicken curry.

Once again 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.
