This is a post mainly aimed at Spencer, I suppose.

Season's greeting to you, Squire - and indeed anyone else dropping by - I've not seen a steam train scurrying along the valley beneath Castle Calamity for quite some time. mainly because you've not given me the usual heads up. Anything in the pipeline?

I've really been suffering the lurgy, this Winter. What started off about a month ago as a respiratory thing, developed into an achey shaky flu-like thing with night sweats and whatnot. I'm now ailing with a very painful shoulder, part rheumatic - owing to a broken collarbone injury, when at infant school - and part, I suspect due to uncontrollably violent coughing fits.

I hate Winter.

We lived right alongside the Watercress Line in open countryside just outside of Alresford before moving to Cornywall. Beautiful steamers passing by us every day on the way to Ropley.
Didn't seem right when the teacups didn't rattle in their saucers on a quiet day. Loved the Santa Special this time of the year with all the excited kids waving flags as they steamed by!! Real Railway Children stuff for us!
