Going up in the world - Alan Sheppard at the 'keen end' of the train on the limit of the Fire Drop Road. The train seems to be carrying apparitions of two of our members; your Editor has never seen a photo quite like this before; was it a ghost train perhaps‽<br>[&copy; Simon Mortimer 2018]

The tour backs up to the appropriately named 'Special Needs Shed', on the left is the multi level stock shed, the inside of which was some of the tiny amount of track not covered here.<br>[&copy; Simon Mortimer 2018]

The thorough coverage at the lovely friendly railway even included the adjacent turntable road - if/when we have a repeat Society visit don't miss it…<br>[&copy; Simon Mortimer 2018]

It's that Mr Sheppard again, no coincidence. Happiness is… being allowed to face the wrong way round, being at the 'keen end' of the train and touching the buffer stops.<br>[&copy; Simon Mortimer 2018]
