Well there was I doing my duty when two engines unexpectedly turned up, the D6948 hauling its Growler Special and 9351 on test runs.
Thank you to all our supporters who came to see the engines from our garden. They found our garden to be an ideal place for such an activity. It was a special weekend for Stogumber as we had the Stogumber Music Festival and the Wild Flower meadow all open with many free events. Here are a few pictures to remind you of
