Iron Horses

10 am on the 27-12-2016.  The doors open and the men and a few families flooded in: for the Iron horses are on display. What more could one want after the Christmas indulgence. Now the chatter will start as our visitors circulate. For it’s the annual Keighley Model Railway Club’s Christmas open day.

There is an added bonus that the ladies in the kitchen will have bacon butties for sale, whilst those visitors with  more funds left over after the festivities, will no doubt check out the club sales stand, looking for that long wanted elusive item, or even a bargain or two.

But foremost for many, including me, its a good day and place to greet old friends and make a few new ones.

Yes memories are a very individual thing.

    1. Thank you Michael. This post really should have gone under my memoirs. At the event which got stuck in my head I managed a model railway layout designed for children to use. It was great fun, and so the memories got fixed, I could not write anything else until I had penned Iron Horses

  1. Enjoyable story. Iron Horse…I haven’t heard that expression in a very long time. There is always a time for more excitement and something different to look at and things to buy. I agree, it is a great time to meet people and enjoy a good conversation sharing experiences, likes, and dislikes.
