It’s been one year.

This weekend it is one year since the wife and I opened Orton Mere Station for the last time.

We decided that it was time for somebody else to have a go running the station, I ran it for fourteen years.

There were good times and there were bad times! But my one main memory is of the excellent people I worked with there over the years. I won’t attempt to name any names as I am bound to forget some.

The pandemic has for this year put the skids on somebody opening it, but I hope than next year somebody is enjoying running it as much as I did.

So if you’re a member of the railway and fancy having a go at running a station contact Kim at the office and I am sure she would love to hear from you.

As for me I will just sit and look back at the many pictures I have of my time there, and enjoy every one.

So if you’re one of the poor souls who drew the short straw and worked at Orton Mere while I ran it then my thanks to you I am grateful and, without exception enjoyed working with you..
