With the trackwork painted and ballasted (previous posting) it was time to run some trains.

I have had a very enjoyable afternoon stepping back in time to the 196os. I watched the Atlantic Coast Express, the Okehampton-Surbiton car carrier. The Meldon ballast and other freight and passenger steam workings on the Waterloo to Exeter mainline in Somerset. I think Sunday's are my favourite time for a heady session of train spotting.

sidingPerhaps many of you spent time in the garden. How are your vegetables coming along? Here at Hewish Gates railway cottages the cauliflowers are full grown with harvesting underway. The residents of Number 1 are going to be sick of meals laced with cauliflower recipes for the next few weeks.

If you would like to know how they were grown pop over to the Basingstoke and Alton Light Railway and whilst you are there register yourself as a follower.
