One of the nicest things was meeting up with old friends and meeting the people my wife call my 'imaginary friends'; ie people I know from the NGRM forum and the 009 society.
One exciting guest to the island was one of the new PECO L&B coaches as seen above. It was slightly too long for this part of the IoSR and the platforms were too near the track so the running boards didn't quite fit, however a rake of them will be marvelous for the mainline. It ran very well and looks brilliant I also had a close look at the saloon which also looks very fine. Many thanks to Vulcan for the visit, I'm sure PECO will do very well with these and the wagons.
A couple more general views during a quiet moment. I was fortunate to be able to hand over the controls to Paul Windle for a while so I could get lunch and have a wander, so many thanks to him and to Peter Kirkby for inviting me along. Time for bed, said Zebedee... boing.
