Big Boys toys, what fun !

FAIRY MEAD

NOMAD STATION

I spent a delightful day out yesterday playing trains. Not far from Lake Macquarie on the outskirts of Toronto there is a narrow gauge railway that has been set up on a property in the last couple of years. People have been working away to get track laid and engines fettled and some carriages rolling. They are having fun and the aim is to provide more people with more fun. A lot of hard work is yet to come but they are having some guests now to enjoy a retro day with them. The weather was perfect people brought picnic lunches and a bit of smoke and a cinder is a small price to pay! They had a small set back recently with some flooding in the very wet time but a meter or so of water in the sheds is nothing to these dedicated people! May they continue the good work.

The photographs are very nice. Sorry about the flooding. That seems to have been almost universal this year.
