Any booking/TTIs out there? Is the shareholder's pass valid? It only says not Santa, so I guess it is?

The query's for a shareholder who has tweeted the official account

Thanks

Patrick

Yes -- that's correct -- SH Pass or Tickets valid as on a normal day.

Hi.
I have heard on FB that the gent who re-enacts Sir Winston Churchill has been `sacked' from the event. Can anyone confirm this?

Mr. Churchill was certainly around yesterday, so unless they've decided to have him for one weekend and not the next...

I've seen something on Facebook saying "Severn valley railway have SACKED the King and Winston CHURCHILL (Robbie Burns) The new management decided to sack Robbie in public late on Sunday because "he made a speech at Highly" What is he there for then? Robbie is disgusted and who can blame him after 16 years supporting them, They have even cancelled his accommodation next weekend. How petty This information is from Robbie himself who has asked us to put the story out to the reenacting circle to make sure everyone knows.

Unbelievable bad manners and lack of respect for an "iconic" re enactor whilst at an event in costume."


I'm sure there are 2 sides to this story, and that the railway wouldn't have taken action without very good reason [tho I've no knowledge myself of what it was].

That's the one. I have known him for a long time. He doesn't seem like the sort of bloke who would create any sort of issue that would cause him to be dismissed.

I have heard a rather different back story to this which I won't repeat as it was at least third hand when I heard it, but suffice to say that there is another side to this story, so perhaps it is not as clear cut as it might at first appear.

DON'T JUMP!



I was considering trying to film the Dakota, but thought I would probably mess it up and photographed it instead. I was in the arboretum and was expecting it to be across the other side of the valley, but even with an 18-135 lens it has come out very well.

5 photos of it here:-

It would appear that whatever did for the timetable last Saturday was successfully combatted, with the past three days of the event running no more than 10 down as far as I'm aware.

As far as we at Kdr are concerned all trains left on time, bar one, which was not of Kdr Staff doing. All arrivals were more or less on time, certainly nothing anywhere like 10 minutes late.

I went again Sunday 7th - very much quieter than my first visit on Sat 29th - guess the weather had an effect! Still busy though and everyone appeared to be enjoying themselves.
