Taking the Prof. for a Ride

Had a most agreeable day today hosting Northern's Professor Paul Salveson to Settle station and around.

Paul is the leading light behind the community rail movement so he was mightily surprised to see what happens in our Unit 8A joinery workshop which he declared to be unique in his experience on the big railway, as opposed to heritage lines.

We saw the Fellsman steam train through, witnessed the 1146 depart for Carlisle with many passengers standing and visited DCC's Settle HQs.

Then a run up Ribblesdale in the Model T, a visit to the Arcow Quarry railhead and Stainforth's Wonder of Wood Ltd.

Oh yes, then lunch at the Talbot.
