June is always a busy month for us - two weekends of Thomas take a lot of work, and the actual days are extremely busy - I didn't get chance to get any photos!

We started the 2015 season with a private hire of the Pullman train at the end of March. This was to celebrate a retirement. Everything worked well and the weather was good, We've had a change of layout in the bar coach and this was the first time of use - it proved to be a popular change.
Easter was good. We have a new caterer this year and are already getting positive feedback.
