Today I had a day off from matters truck. I donned my On-Train-Guide vest and accompanied a group of 53 Girl Guides from Settle to Appleby. None of the other On-Train-Guides had been brave enough to put their names down for the trip. Now I have to say that the Girl Guides were not teenagers. They were fully fledged women, most wearing girl guide uniforms. Boss Girl Guides I guess, staying under canvas in Langcliffe. If Hitler had known about the Girl Guides he would not have even thought about it.
I survived. My commentary was appreciated - I even got a round of applause. The conductor appeared in our carriage, took one look and declared "I'm sure they've got tickets; I'm not going in there"!
