Subject: Whitby FW Glaisdale Train
Hi Folks
Once again Whitby Folk Week is almost upon us and the Glaisdale Train is in the sheds being polished for our annual jaunt on the first Sunday of Folk week to the Arncliffe Arms.The Fat Controller has been notified so he can tell the guard who normally only has 2 old men, one old lady, two walkers and a dog to contend with.
The train leaves Whitby at 12.43 on Sunday 19 August arriving in Glaisdale at 13.07, we've spoken to the landlady who is looking forward to our visitation and as ever was very helpful (I even mentioned the domino players, but as I've said to many people it's their pub 52 weeks a year, not just one day).
The return journey leaves Glaisdale at 16.25 and if you miss this one you'll never get another one (diddly diddly omp pom, to San Frenando)and hopefully Ossenflags and I will eventually get the right station to start singing "Leaving Nancy" so we hit the buffers in whitby at 15.58 with the final chorus. Looking forward to seeing friends old and new.

Cheers Nick & Christine
