Today, 2nd March, ten enthusiasts met at Winwick, no doubt attracted by the fine weather. One of them was Peter Haselden who, with his grandson, Danny Daven, built the bench that we all sit on from time to time. The metal sign he attached to the bench was taken from a cart, which used to operate, horse-drawn, from Marylebone Station in London. Peter and Danny built the bench from scrap wood c.2006. I have attached a pic of Peter stood behind his bench.
Alan Rigby, another first-time contributor, has sent in a few pics for our blog, two of which I have included in this post. The first is of class 37, 37401, heading a Blackburn - Arpley Yard load of cargo wagons, taken on 23rd January 2008.
