What a glorious feeling! And so it was on Sunday when ESME members, family & friends braved serious flooding on the roads to enjoy 2019’s open day and see the progress a year has made. Enjoy it they did! The smiling faces, the queues for the trains, the consumption of the burgers and the positive comments all made for a memorable event.
Our photographers had a field day with damp conditions combined with a perfectly still day mixing with the steam to provide some very atmospheric shots. We hope you enjoy the photo story!
The other news is that the steel work for the Five Sisters Crossing is being delivered mid October and then it is full speed ahead to complete the 5″/3½” ‘Newliston’ circuit by December. Then, we can enjoy seeing the full range of members locomotives running at Almondell.
