Its fair to say that this year hasn't been exactly what I planned. I aimed by now to have been to a lot more railways and a lot more events than I've managed. I can recount many reasons for all of this. Not being able to get off my road in the heavy snows at the start of the year meant a slow start. Then the fantastic Summer that we all enjoyed meant that other jobs got some priority as I caught up with things I meant to do last year.
Now though, its my turn. Gala season is back, and so am I. With the steam drought I have endured now firmly behind me the camera is packed, the car is ready and the timetables are printed (well the first of them anyway). Starting at the Nene Valley Railway on the weekend of the 14th I have seven events over the next two months on the plan to cover. Stay tuned for updates.
