The weather was glorious,
the sea was slight,
and the Island like a gemstone shimmered in the light.
A big thank you to the Railway Enthusiasts Society inc for all their support in helping to make this day so successful.
Finally we would like to thank all of our other volunteers and passengers who spent the day with us. We hope to see you back next year.
