We held the WFMA BBQ at Whiteman Park yesterday and the day started off windy and cloudy but turned into a warm sunny afternoon. Your committee was there to welcome the few hardy members who were not put off by the previous day’s downpours and it turned into a very sociable event.

Nathan and Doug took us over to the Rail station and round the sheds and gave us a very informative tour, lots of work in progress preserving some of the older steam engines and carriages and wagons as well as the diesels. We were all entertained by Dani’s 2 children who insisted on collecting lumps of coal to take home with them and as you can imagine both were soon covered in black coal dust.

In all an very enjoyable day out for everyone with lots of interesting stories and I’m looking forward to a repeat in the future.
