Telegraph 30 included a donation form for the Reopening Fund - the response has been excellent after just two days, and thanks to everyone who's already contributed. You can of course donate via the sidebar on this site!
We've had a few comments about the 'LMS' brake van - rest assured that this will be repainted with BR(M) lettering very shortly! There are also plans to repaint No10 in two-tone green and the Sentinel will now be turned out in BR black rather than Prussian blue. This is all part of our intention to recreate the S&D as closely as possible to 1950s condition throughout - stations, locos and rolling stock.
We have THREE volunteers joining the catering team this Saturday - why not come along and make them feel at home? With luck this fresh blood should enable us to open every Sunday from the end of September.
Remember we are taking part in the Heritage Open Weekend this coming weekend so the station should be pretty lively and the weather forecast is good!
