It is the NYMR war weekend 16-18 October.

I shall be there (as usual) - probably on the Saturday. Of all the 40s events in the North, to me this is by far and away the best - steam trains - live music - re-enacting - parades - period vehicles etc etc

Anybody fancy a bit of a group get-together?

Hi Carl,

This looks good, but I can't commit until the end of the week. What are your plans for the day? Will you stay in Pickering or wherever, say, or travel on an actual train? I've just looked at the website and it looks as though train tickets have to be bought in advance by post, which would not leave me enough time.

Regards,
John

Hi John,
Carl is on business till the end of the week.

I'm meeting him at the small car park in Vivis Lane, Pickering 08.45-09.00 on Saturday. Last time we had a Day Rover ticket between Pickering and Grosmont allowing us to station hop during the day. From memory I think we just bought the ticket on the day and we have a similar plan for this year.

Hope you can make it.

Thanks, Barrie. My wife's away at the moment, so don't know what plans she might be hatching!

Hope I can get there - it looks a good day out!

Hi John and Gary (and anybody else considering going)

Hope you can make it. We shall be riding the rails - tickets are always available on the day - they just (for obvious reasons) encourage you to pre-purchase.

As Barrie said - we are aiming for Vivis lane car park 0845-0900. If you decide you are going and have concerns about the meeting place/ time - pm me and we can exchange mobile numbers.

Hi Carl, I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to get there this weekend after all. Shame, as I was looking forward to meeting you and Barrie again. Have a good day!

Good set Gary. How long did you wait for a deserted LeVisham!!!
Sorry we had lost you when we came out of the repair shop. Then we spent too much time in the High Street and missed the train.
I think we were just out of sync after that.
