Trains for the weekend were in the hands of 5637, a `teenager` during the 1940`s, having ben built in 1925. The sign says it all really.... Cranmore Station platform just before departure.  Doors open waiting for passengers to board and the station with its superb floral display and bunting looks good in the afternoon sun Ticket Inspector Dave Clarke puts the lamp on the bufferbeam of 5637 following the run round at Mendip Vale The Sunday morning at about 7am, all is still in the car park where the exhibits are located ... ... Sophie the road roller awaits her driver ... and a row of tractors await a busy day of road runs, tractor rides and visitors. ... the lathe is also still. A couple of hours later and the railway is a hve of activity, this time with a group of traditional english folk dancers.  I think this one is called the plough. Lining up for another dance, and then they were off.      Many of the exhibiters and our visitors chose to dress in period costume and were captured posing against suitable backdrops around the railway. A member of the Women`s Royal Naval Service (WRNS, popularly known as `Wrens`) which was a non-combat branch of the Royal Navy More period costume, this time and Air Raid Warden and a member of the Land Army More period costume... Dickie Lines performing as the train returns.  His attempts to encourage the Footplate Crew and Guard in a chorus of `run rabbit run` fell on deaf ears... Moving to exhibits in the car park, this US Army Jeep and driver were enjoying their weekend. Also present for the weekend were the Shepton Mallet Drifters Model Boat Club with display stands and pool with radio controlled boats which kept the railays junior members (aka `gangers`) occupied and penniless.. A close up of the Drifters display Finally, one of his many guises throughout the weekend saw this gentleman become an Italian Prisoner of War spending the day sweeping the platform, in this shot posing with his wife.  Our thanks go to him - the platform has never looked cleaner!
