    Yes its a fantastic weekend. The steam train ride is magical, if you dress up its like being a film extra :Rofl1: You can get some brilliant pics. Especially if you do them in sepia.
    Its the first time we havn't been for 5 years .
    Ralph finished his job up in Northumberland yesterday , so we could have gone for the day. I forgot it was this weekend. But Sunday lunch and a lazy day at home after being away was top on the list for him.
    Oh well , still got the uniform , couldn't bare to sell it. If we do Eden camp i shall get it out of the mothballs:Wink:
    Im sure we will be going next year.

    We also attended the war weekend, great weather Saturday and lots going on.
    Had a good look round the showground but could not find any Funsters, no stickers in sight. Both Sat & Sun morning all the tents had a good covering of
    frost, it must have been cold in them!.
    Hopefully we can be better organised next year and have a proper meet.

    would have been alright if hagnap had sorted it as the officials on site were a bit disorganised but yes it was a great weekend went into whitby on the train and had our fish and chip lunch at the quayside resturant and watched all the parades etc:thumb:

    We also attended the War Weekend after being invited to a small private gathering on hardstanding just outside the town at cost of £6 per night, considerably less than the show ground. it was so good we stayed three nights :thumb::thumb:

    We dressed up and had a cracking weekend. Saw Funsters Gran & Rog on two occasions in the town, and said hello.
