12 September 2015
Fortunately the last shower, a light one, came as I wandered down to Oak Tree soon after arriving - a good time to check out the shed. By the time I’d finished there, the last drops were falling. The rest of the day was dry, with some bright sunshine. A very dark cloud late in the morning threatened, but that’s all it did. It was, of course, an excellent day out. Nothing new - no visiting locos. I didn’t actually count how many were in steam - someone else will know. Significantly, there were no 2’6” locos operating - the Statfold rumour mill is active in that direction... Enough said - let’s look at the pictures Link: Statfold Barn Railway
