Rain stops play at SMEE

Mamod in the rain at SMEE

Andy’s Mamod steam tractor, number 1, in it’s final moments of steaming for the day as a SMEE garden railway train passes in the background.

The weather did not want to play ball for our last visit if the season to SMEE today. Despite the rain, Andy, Alan and Harry all turned up, determined to put on a display of working Mamod steam engines.

One of Alan’s gazebos was erected in the garden railway area and two engines (one belonging to Andy and one belonging to Alan did make it into steam. However due to the cold, damp weather and a very poor turn out of visitors, it was an early finish, with everything packed away by 4pm.

As the railway at SMEE closes down for the winter, today was our last scheduled visit of the year. Our thanks to all the members at the track for making us so welcome and we hope to be back soon.
