While we were laying track on Saturday, the Lynton & Barnstable was running multiple trains during their Fall Gala. Four engines under steam!!

A couple of small inaccuracies there Wayne.

The L&B Autumn (Fall) Gala was on the 29th & 30th September where I was a volunteer on both days. The following weekend I was back home glued to my computer awaiting reports of what was being achieved at the WW&F.

And secondly, the correct spelling is Barnstaple, not Barnstable. It's a common mistake, you are not the first to make it and you certainly won't be the last!

Thanks for the corrections, Christopher. I must have gotten carried away in my enthusiasm for the L&B and the many parallels between it and the WW&F. I'll try to be more careful in future.
